This Espresso Martini Day, on 15th March, seven top London restaurants have joined together to create a special Espresso Martini Trail for you to follow.
Each restaurant is putting a funky spin on their espresso martini, from a Jungle Espresso Martini at Zuaya to a chocolatey Espresso Mochitini at JIJI.
Choose to enjoy the cocktails with dinner or follow the trail around London to find your favourite. These cocktails will be around for a month afterwards so try the trail anytime!
