40ml Jameson Select Reserve

25ml lemon juice

15ml sugar syrup (2:1 syrup)

10ml Creme de Mure

A dash of cloudy apple juice

2. Espresso martini

The ingredients:
30ml Mr Black
30ml Vodka (or dark rum or tequila)
30ml Espresso
10ml Simple Syrup

The ‘how to’: Add ingredients and shake it like you stole it. I mean it. Shake it hard. Very hard. Don’t be a monster, double strain it. If you’ve got to make more than one in an evening, pre-batch your sugar and espresso.
