National Espresso Martini Day is one of the few holidays that combines two of my favorite things: caffeine and alcohol.
It’s a day to savor the taste of espresso combined with vodka, coffee liqueur, chocolate liqueur and whipped cream. One can’t wait until it rolls around in 2022.

The History of the National Espresso Martini Day
The history is relatively short. In the year 2020, a 20-year-old woman named Kelly Humphries claimed to invent the drink after having a craving for coffee and alcohol.
One of her friends had made it for her earlier in the day and she decided to post it on social media, after which it caught on like wildfire. The date of November 11th was chosen because that is when Starbucks was founded in 1971.
This holiday can be celebrated by going to a bar or making the drink at home with any combination of ingredients.
