Cocktail of the Week: Barcelona Morning

Barcelona Morning is the perfect post-dinner pick-me-up when you've got a night of celebrating ahead of you. This well-balanced espresso martini has notes of orange and can also serve as a perfect brunch cocktail when a Bloody Mary just won't do it. And don't forget the most important step — topping it off with whip cream!


  • 2 oz. Brandy
  • Dark Roast Coffee Pod
  • 1 oz. Triple Sec
  • Whipped cream and orange zest for garnish


  1. Add all the ingredients to a shaker, add ice and shake until chilled.
  2. Pour into a martini glass
  3. Top with whipped cream, and zested orange
