To celebrate the launch of Lavazza’s all-new premium coffee, ¡Tierra! for Cuba, and in time for World Espresso Martini Day on Friday, 15th March, Lavazza has shared the ultimate recipe for an Espresso Martini

This one has an exotic Cuban twist.

¡Tierra! for Cuba is the latest addition to Lavazza’s sustainable and organic ¡Tierra! Collection. It boasts a balanced and nutty blend with aromatic notes of chocolate and nuts.

It’s made with a perfect combination of Arabica and Robusta beans, resulting in a full-bodied and flavourful coffee that is sure to satisfy any coffee lover’s taste buds.

Lavazza’s Cuban Espresso Martini Recipe:

To serve two Lavazza Cuban Espresso Martini’s, you’ll need:

·       Cuban rum – We use Havana Club 7 (80ml)

·       Espresso made with ¡Tierra! For Cuba coffee (60ml)

·       Brown sugar syrup (20ml)

·       Ice

·       For the best results and to create an impressive crema, use a foamer such as Ms. Better’s (4 drops)

How to prepare the perfect cocktail:

1.     Add ice and water to a martini glass to chill.

  1. In a cocktail shaker, pour in the Cuban rum, ¡Tierra! For Cuba espresso and brown sugar syrup – option to also add you foamer here.
  2. Add a scoop of cubed ice to the shaker and shake hard for about 10 seconds.
  3. Discard the ice/water from the chilled martini glass.
  4. Double-strain the cocktail into the martini glass.
  5. Garnish with three ¡Tierra! For Cuba coffee beans.
  6. Enjoy your delicious Lavazza Cuban Espresso Martini!
