#100DaysOfCocktails - Day 59 - Espresso Martini

Dick Bradsell was approached by a young lady in his London bar with one request: give her something that will "wake me up and [expletive] me up."

Considering the flavor profile, I can give it a pass.

If there is an iconic coffee drink, it is the Irish Coffee. There are other ones out there, but none with with cache that this simple cocktail has. Warmed by the coffee and a shot of Irish whiskey, a little whipped cream on top for texture, this is not a bad way to end a meal.
