The traditional espresso martini has been transformed to create the perfect evening tipple.

The cocktail is smooth much like a traditional espresso martini, but contains refreshing lemon notes.

Those attending the fashion shows in Sydney from May 31 to June 4 will be able to enjoy the beverage, but it can also be replicated at home.

When recreating the cocktail, Disaronno’s brand ambassador Danilo Migliorini was challenged with ‘capturing essence of aperitivo hour on the Italian streets’.

Danilo said: ‘I created this recipe after having a chat with Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales of RWB. They told me what they love about Italy, starting with countless beautiful historic churches, and the quality of their coffee and chocolate.

‘Sitting out on the streets in a café and soaking it all in. They also like Espresso Martinis so I took the chance to make their own cocktail based on that, but with a twist. 

For this reason, the cocktail was named ‘A Romance Was Born In Saronno’. 

To make beverage at home you’ll need Disaronno, cold brewed coffee, Tia Maria, Vodka, milk, lemon juice and sugar syrup.

You will also need a conical filter, coffee filter, measuring cups and an empty 1L bottle to shake the ingredients together.

The cocktail is simple to make and would be a great beverage to enjoy when hosting guests on weekends.

Let this mixture rest for about 30 minutes

On top of the empty 1lt bottle, place in the conical filter and on top of the conical filter place the coffee filter

Slowly start pouring the mixture into the filter and wait for it to filter through, this may take some time
