Boston’s BEST Espresso Martini Is Coming To Your Local Liquor Store!
Can someone say HALLELUJAH?! Quite frankly (no pun intended), I’m shocked this hasn’t already been done but the genius that is the son of restaurateur Frank DePasquale AND head bartender at Bricco have just come up with the most brilliant idea ever. The are taking the absolute BEST espresso martinis in Boston, bottling them up, and selling them in local liquor stores. This will allow us to get the amazing taste of the best espresso martini at home with literally NO work. Who do we have to thank for this masterpiece? Joey DePasquale and Bricco head bartender, Glen LaMaitre.
So I consider myself a connoisseur of espresso martinis as it’s one of the only drinks I have on the weekend. I also consider myself a foodie and travel all over the state to some of the best restaurants. There are some that come VERY close as I will give an honorable mention to Fratelli’s inside of Encore Boston Harbor. Billy, Diego, Patrick and the crew take a lot of pride in their espresso martinis and they are DELICIOUS. But the drink that reigns supreme is the espresso martini at Bricco at 241 Hanover Street in Boston’s North End. Bricco is owned by Frank DePasquale and while their food is delicious, NOTHING beats their espresso martinis.
What’s the recipe? While I can tell you the ingredients, you’ll have to figure out the amounts. The Bricco espresso martini contains: Baileys, espresso, Kahlua, Amaretto and Frangelico. The magic will be bottled up soon and sold in your local liquor store. I’ve been told this will be happening in TWO MONTHS. (March ish) No word on pricing but the bottled espresso martinis will also be sold in all DePasquale restaurants. So THANK YOU Joey and Glen! We can’t WAIT.
