Espresso Martini Canned Cocktails
What is so Special about Espresso Martini Canned Cocktails?
For a coffee lover, nothing quite compares to the indulgence of an Espresso Martini. It’s the perfect harmony of the earthy bitterness of coffee, the luscious sweetness of coffee liqueur, all elevated with a dash of vodka. Ordering an Espresso Martini (or crafting one at home) offers endless possibilities – some prefer a touch of simple syrup, others experiment with chocolate or seasonal flavors like pumpkin spice. Much like ordering your custom espresso at the local café, the customization options are boundless. No wonder these cocktails have been steadily gaining popularity since the 1980s and now rank among the most popular choices at bars.
But what if you crave the Espresso Martini experience in the comfort of your home without the hassle and expense of gathering all the ingredients? Fortunately, you don’t have to go through the trouble. There’s a diverse range of ready-to-drink Espresso Martini canned cocktails to choose from. In this article, we’ll focus on their availability, ensuring that these caffeinated delights are accessible across the nation (or close to it).

Loverboy Espresso Martinis also contain caffeine, similar to the classic cocktail, and are gluten-free for those with celiac.

Bonus: Moonlight Barista Canned Cocktail

While Moonlight Barista is currently exclusive to select states, it’s worth mentioning due to its exceptional quality. This RTD won both the Platinum Medal and Best High ABV Award at the Seltzer Nation Awards 2023, boasting a robust 15.5% ABV. Surprisingly, despite its high alcohol content, it maintains a subtle alcohol presence, allowing the rich coffee flavors to take center stage.
