Mr Black’s specialty-grade cold brew coffee liqueur is quickly becoming the preferred choice for the country’s best bars and restaurants – in large part because of its true coffee flavor. Discerning drinkers know that ingredients matter – better coffee makes better coffee cocktails.  The Mr Black team, full of certified coffee nerds, knows an Espresso Martini is not complete without Mr Black. Its iconic taste of freshly roasted coffee with notes of dark chocolate and caramel makes for an undeniably smooth finish. 

Venues for Espresso Martini Fest were hand-picked by the Mr Black team, showcasing exemplary classic Espresso Martinis and innovative cold-brewed creations all week long. Be it clarified, carbonated, nitro-infused, stacked into a tower, or garnished with cannoli, over 220 bars from across the country are coming together to create an exhilarating week of Espresso Martinis.

Mark your calendars for October 9th – 15th as a variety of unique, one-of-a-kind Espresso Martinis set up shop in your city, curated by top mixologists, including but not limited to:    

  • Motek by mixologist Christine Wiseman: Taking inspiration from the Vietnamese egg yolk cream coffee now with a Tel Aviv spin, this cocktail incorporates a labneh egg foam to give it a hint of acidity for a truly delectable and one-of-a-kind taste profile. 
  • Chocolate Covered Strawberry by mixologist Tyler Hunter: We turned the Espresso Martini into a sneaky treat! Our coffee beans have notes of milk chocolate, brownie, and hazelnut that are combined with Mr Black to unify a perfect combination of flavors for this cocktail.   
  • Yuenyeung by mixologist Channing Centeno: Yuenyeung is a classic Cantonese beverage that is part black tea and part coffee. It’s rich, bitter, creamy, and sweet, and when made with Mr Black creates a perfectly balanced and authentic creation.
  • Baby I’m Amaized by mixologist Kayla Dowell:  Baby I’m Amaized is not your traditional Espresso Martini — It’s far from it. We started playing around with corn for a cocktail we used to have on our menu, using masa and fat washing. I added a bar spoon of Mr. Black to the cocktail and the flavors blew my mind.
  • Coco Cafecito by mixologist Emilio Salehi: Coffee is very present in South American culture, and the Venezuelan rum, cold brew along with the flavor of nuts and fruit coming from Mr Black really set this cocktail apart.  

Discover the list of participating venues at the Mr Black Espresso Martini Festival Hub and join us in celebrating the culmination of Espresso Martini Fest at The Mr Black Espresso Martini House in NYC on Friday, October 13th from 7-10pm featuring live music, innovative cocktails from top bars, light bites and more.
