Love coffee? Love vodka? Here’s a marriage made in heaven…

For those who love coffee with a kick, Coffee Holy Grass Vodka is a drink of splendour.

Delicious alone, it also lends itself to contemporary cocktails that are darkly elegant, smooth, and enticing. Made by the sustainable, family owned Dunnet Bay Distillers, this vodka is made in the UK’s most northerly mainland distillery – in the far north of Scotland.

We bring you two intriguing coffee martini cocktails, both using this exceptional spirit, and each served in the elegant glass which has been made especially for the Distillery and which you can also buy online.

Salted Caramel Martini

50ml Coffee Holy Grass Vodka
20ml Caramel syrup (or to taste)
25ml Frangelico Liqueur
10ml Simple syrup (or to taste)
Sea salt
To garnish: coffee beans and extra salt for the rim, if you wish.


Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add all the liquids plus a pinch of sea salt. Shake well and strain into a chilled martini glass (first frost the rim with salt if you wish). Garnish with three coffee beans.

Mocha Martini

50ml Coffee Holy Grass Vodka
20gm 70% Dark chocolate
35ml Hot espresso coffee
25ml Sugar syrup
Double cream
Garnish: coffee beans and cocoa powder


Lightly whip the cream with a whisk until slightly thickened, but not so much that it holds its shape. Set aside. Chop the chocolate into small pieces and add to a cocktail shaker. Pour over the hot coffee and stir to melt the chocolate. Add the sugar syrup and Coffee Holy Grass Vodka, top up with cubed ice and stir well. Pour into chilled glasses and float a thin layer of the cream on top over the back of a spoon. You can use a cocktail stick to marble the top, and add a couple of coffee beans to garnish, and a sprinkle of cocoa powder.
