The espresso martini was created in the late 1980s in Soho, London by the late celebrated bartender Dick Bradsell. Legend has it that a model asked for something that would, "wake me up, and then f**k me up" (some speculate the model was Kate Moss, others Naomi Campbell, but Dick never revealed her identity). Dick noted that the cocktail's invention happened out of circumstance and annoyance as the coffee machine was right next to his drink station and because vodka was all the rage in the 80s. The cocktail swiftly became popular and is enjoyed in bars all around the world.
