Ingredients for an Espresso Martini Bar


There is no right or wrong way to create an Espresso Martini Bar, but here are some tips I find helpful:

  1. Place an ice bucket in the middle of the board or designated area.
  2. Place martini glasses on either side of the ice bucket.
  3. Place alcohol bottles on one side of the board and coffee supplies and chocolate/caramel sauce on the other side of the board.
  4. Fill in any empty spaces with smaller cups filled with garnishes such as cookies and coffee beans.
  5. Enjoy!

Here’s a Quick Video Tutorial!

Perfect Presentation Platters

I love using wooden serving trays to make the Espresso Martini Bar portable and/or to designate a space for setup, but you can also set this up right on a counter of table! Some of my favorite products are:

Ice Bucket: I used this Checkered Ice Bucket from Mac-Kenzie Childs! I also love this ice bucket mold! Just add pretty flowers (real or fake) as you fill it up before freezing. Tip: Use hot water so the ice freezes clear!

Large Serving Boards: If you’d like a rectangular tray similar to mine, this wooden version from Target is great, as well as this beautiful choice from Etsy. For a higher-end round tray, I love my MacKenzie-Childs checkered party tray, as well as this round wooden Target tray, that you can use year-round.

Glasses:  I love these coupe glasses from Target for a great price!

Kitchen Links: I get asked all the time about the products in the background of my kitchen. Much of it is from MacKenzie-Childs, which I have slowly grown a collection of over the years! My favorites are this checkered chopping board, my black and white checkered teapot, and the gray and white checkered utensil holder. I also have this enamel canister that you can find in smallmedium, or large.

Can I Prep This Espresso Martini Board Ahead of Time?

Absolutely! You can set up several items in advance. Just keep the ice in the freezer any items that need to be refrigerated in the fridge. I also prefer to keep the cookies wrapped or packaged so they don’t get stale.

Storing Leftovers

You can store any liquor at room temperature and place any leftover chocolate/caramel sauce in the fridge. I like to keep the packaging for any cookies or sweets in the pantry so I can just return them there. You can also store any leftover cookies in a Ziploc bag!
