‘Mock’ing the espresso martini

L’Or Espresso ‘mocks’ the espresso martini.

The martini was a Jazz Age invention of infinite variety with the espresso martini a popular modern iteration. Now L’Or Espresso has come up with a virgin version set to spice up your winter. Created in France in 1992, L’Or’s ambition has always been to offer the best coffee globally. In 2010, the brand expanded beyond the French borders with the launch of L’Or Espresso, the first coffee capsule compatible with Nespresso Original machines. Here is L’Or Espresso’s Mocktini: 


1 shot L’Or Espresso of your favorite blend   

1 tablespoon chocolate syrup 

4 ounces half & half 

¼ cup ice 

Unsweetened cocoa powder and edible gold flakes (optional) 


  1. Brew espresso into cup with chocolate syrup. Stir to mix.
  2. Pour ice into cocktail shaker along with espresso and half & half.
  3. Seal and shake, shake, shake. Ice will melt, no straining necessary.  
  4. Pour into martini glass, dust with cocoa, top with edible gold flakes and enjoy.
