In recent weeks, TikTok users have started putting an unexpected twist on the classic cocktail.
The new "parmesan espresso martini" has become a sensation on TikTok, and cocktail enthusiasts are loving it.
Whether the idea leaves you interested or intrigued, an expert has revealed there's a secret to making it work.
Abby Matthews, cocktail expert and director of The Cocktail Co, producer of ready-to-drink cocktails, said: "The idea of adding parmesan to an espresso martini might sound unusual at first, but it's a flavour combination that you’re likely already familiar with from a lot of popular breakfast meals – take an egg and cheese omelette with a coffee for example.
"Espresso martinis have always been a crowd-pleaser, offering smooth indulgence balanced with a caffeine kick.
"And while the cocktail is perfectly delicious by itself, the addition of a salty, savoury flavour profile from the parmesan can balance nicely with the cocktail’s sweet and bitter flavours, adding a unique depth that will leave your taste buds pleasantly surprised."
If it sounds like something you may be keen to try then Cocktail Co also explained how to give the recipe a whirl.
Here's what you need to do to make your bevvy a little cheesy.
Chill with ice
This should be anywhere around six to seven degrees, as chilling so it’s extremely cold can change the flavour profiles and ruin the taste.
Shake and pour into a martini glass
Always remember to shake before serving to get a smooth blend.
Grate parmesan shavings directly on top
Grate a light amount of parmesan shavings directly on top of the espresso martini.
They should float on top and provide a unique taste with every sip.
