Trends come and go, but Absolut Vodka and Kahlúa Coffee Liquor are ensuring espresso martinis are a forever thing with a new cocktail kit that’s a reflection of both today’s trends and retro’s renaissance. 

The Absolut x Kahlúa espresso martini kit encapsulates the extensive and rich history that both Absolut and Kahlúa have with the cocktail. The kit is the ultimate companion for consumers who are looking to bring warmth and a touch of elegance to any celebratory occasion with loved ones, or simply to enjoy leisurely on a date night at home.

While the variations of the recipe have changed since the first version was created by British barman, Dick Bradsell, Kahlúa has been the liqueur of choice since its inception in 1983. With its enticing caramel colour, Kahlúa boasts the deep, rich flavour of real black coffee and indulgent sweet butter that compliments Absolut’s hint of caramel and vanilla, to carry this cocktail beautifully.

The Absolut x Kahlúa espresso martini kit includes everything you need to make the bold, decadent and smooth cocktail: one 375 mL bottle of Absolut Vodka, one 375 mL bottle of Kahlúa Coffee Liquor and one 355 mL can of Station Cold Brew. Mix with equal parts, this thoughtfully curated and easy-to-use kit can make up to 12 servings – perfect for sharing…or indulging!

The kits are available for purchase online at the LCBO, or in-store.
