  • Ice
  • 1 fluid ounce espresso - caffeinated or decaffeinated
  • 1 fluid ounce Gin
  • 1 fluid ounce Sweet Vermouth
  • 1 fluid ounce Campari
  • Orange twist


  • Place a rocks glass in the freezer and allow it to cool for 15 minutes. Remove from the freezer when ready to prepare your cocktail.
  • Prepare the Espresso. To an espresso cup add 1-2 small ice cubes. Brew your desired espresso over the ice and allow it to cool. Set aside.
  • To the chilled rocks glass add 3 large ice cubes or 6-9 smaller ice cubes. Fill the glass with the Gin, Vermouth, and Campari. Gently stir to combine.
  • Add the orange slice to the glass.
  • Use a large spoon to gently pour the espresso into the glass. To create a fun layer between the alcohol and the espresso, avoid going too fast and allow time for the two layers to re-separate.
  • Serve with a short straw, if desired.


There are approximately 30ml per 1 ounce
