The Espresso Martini, like many of the world’s best cocktails, has a story that evolved over time. Invented in the 1980s by British barman Dick Bradsell, the cocktail became an overnight sensation. While it remains one of London’s best-known and beloved cocktails, numerous twists on the Espresso Martini can be found worldwide.

One such evolution is Cognac as the base spirit of the drink as opposed to vodka. By subbing out the vodka in favor of Rémy Martin 1738®, the cocktail becomes more elevated and refined, as well as simply delicious. The drink has more depth, as the notes of hazelnut and dark chocolate that are delivered from the Cognac pair perfectly with the flavors of the espresso.

Here’s how to make the perfect Espresso Martini with Rémy Martin 1738:
