F&B Holiday Highlight: National Espresso Martini Day!

In Celebration of the special holiday, please see the El Cristiano XR Espresso Martini featured. While espresso martinis became popular with vodka, the shift to tequila in the last year has been ever present. El Cristiano, proud to call themselves the world’s most delicious tequila, is additive-free, sustainable and therefore without hangover,  was one of the first brands to promote their varieties with espresso martini, featuring recipes with both their Extra Reposado (XR) and their Extra Anejo (Black Label). In just under two years since launch, they have also already won over 32 awards and accolades, including the Pro%f 2023 Century Award.

Served at venues such as Wynn Hotels, Soho House, Waldorf Astoria, Margot, Juliet, Wally’s, Javier’s, The Hideaway and Cold Shoulder, their Espresso Martini XR has been a featured drink at Nobu Malibu as well, to much demand. El Cristiano can be picked up at Total Wines & More nationwide as well as liquor and convenience stores across California, Colorado, Nevada, Florida, Georgia, and New York, plus many more states that are added monthly. They are available via online liquor delivery apps in almost every state as well. The XR bottle retails for $110 to note, and their classic reposado at $65, silver at $45 and Extra Anejo for $135.
