What if we took the 50:50 Martini template and crossed it with an Espresso Martini? Would we have fun?! YES. Would it be delicious?! ALSO YES.

It’s such a simple template anyone can enjoy this drink equally at home or in a bar. The 50:50 ratio allows the Mr. Black and lemon gin to perfectly complement each other, along with a couple dashes of bitters. Lemon bitters are great but this template is great with any number of other bitters. The combo Mr Black & lemon gin is a perfect template.



 1.50 oz Mr. Black Coffee Liqueur
 1.50 oz Lemon Gin (Sipsmith or Malfy)
 2 dashes Lemon bitters



Combine ingredients in a mixing glass and stir to chill.


Express a lemon peel above a cocktail glass and discard. Strain drink into cocktail glass. Garnish with a flower or an unexpressed lemon twist


Enjoy the goth joy
