Celebrate National Espresso Day on 11/23 with These Winter-Inspired Cocktails

With espresso martinis having a moment and National Espresso Day just around the corner (11/23), we wanted to share a few boozy cocktails crafted with hints of fall and winter flavors (and some booze).

Located in Sundance Square in the heart of Fort Worth, The Kimpton Harper and its Italian restaurant, il Modo, are gearing up for cooler weather by offering a specialty booze drink. Named after Vito Corleone from the Godfather, the “il Corleone,” one of il Modo’s signature drinks, is a Texas twist on the classic “Godfather” cocktail, blending unexpected flavors like Texas whiskey, fresh brewed coffee, pecan brown sugar bourbon and milk chocolate Godiva liquor.

Cold Brew Tini

Overlooking the Golden1 Center, home of the Sacramento Kings, The Kimpton Sawyer debuted its fall/winter cocktail menu, alongside a few specialty NBA cocktails in celebration of basketball season. Following Revival’s recent refresh, guests can enjoy signature cocktails + small bites to feel that tingly, warm sensation and festive spirit all winter long. The newly crafted Cold Brew Tini, by mixologist Eric Cohen, offers a bold but smooth shake up from the ordinary espresso martini.


Harvest Season is officially here, bringing mild fall temperatures making it the ideal time to visit the Santa Ynez Valley. In Solvang, Vinland Hotel and Lounge is an oenophile’s dream with its specialty wine suites. The seasonal “Falltini” created by Bartender Codi Valdez is inspired by a love for the season and surrounding vineyards showcasing vibrant fall colors, the cocktail incorporates hints of pumpkin, caramel, and graham cracker to make the ultimate fall espresso martini.
