That Non-Alcoholic Buzz

The N/A
Espresso Martini

Most non-alcoholic espresso martinis lack the thick head of fluffy foam that makes the drink so appealing. After a lot of experimentation, The Zero Proof’s content director, Suzan Eraslan, hit on the secret ingredient: Some good instant coffee. The result is a foam so dense you could float a dozen espresso beans on top.

In a cocktail shaker, pour non-alcoholic rum, The Pathfinder, Orange Bitters, maple syrup, and instant coffee. Dry shake (without ice) for 30 seconds. Add ice and shake for an additional 30 seconds. Strain through a hawthorn strainer into a coupe glass. Give the cocktail shaker a little jiggle and swirl while straining to get every last bit of foam. Float espresso beans on the foam to garnish.
