One thing I learned while traveling to Italy and France last month is that its really hard to get a good cocktail. Sure there’s a plethora of awesome wine, champagne and prosecco, but since I’m not a huge wine drinker, sometimes I just wanted a good ol’ girly drink, like an Espresso Martini. It all started while in Venice, we were tired from walking all day and wanted an afternoon cocktail. We popped into a little bar that looked like they had a lot of different alcohol and asked if they could make us an Espresso Martini. I’m not sure if the look we got was because the bartender didn’t quite understand English, or if he just thought we were weird asking for such a thing! But we were determined to get something other than wine and we were in dire need of some caffeine!
