It's a classic for a reason – everyone loves the combination of the pick-me-up powers of coffee and the cool-you-out properties of booze in an Espresso Martini. For winter, Patrón XO Café has curated a list of ace Sydney bars serving a twist on a coffee cocktail, and they're calling it Expresso Society (geddit). Now isn't the time to hibernate – there are cocktails to be drunk and plenty of good times to be had over these Espresso Martinis with a twist.

Want to make these recipes at home? Pick up a bottle of Patrón XO Café from any Dan Murphy's and get shaking.

Vote for the bar making your favourite Patrón XO Café Espresso Martini and win a $200 bar tab.
