February 10, 2021

Many of Pret’s most loved recipes are freshly made in their shop kitchens by Pret Team members. No scary machines, no red-faced shouty chefs… and no reason not to try making these delicious recipes yourself! From souper soups to sweet treats, now you can make your favourite Pret recipes at home and share a snap of your creations on social using #PretRecipeBook.

Espresso Martini


60 ml brewed coffee (espresso is preferable, but you can use whatever coffee you have available at home)

100 ml base spirit (vodka is the traditional base spirit but experiment with gin or rum)

40 ml simple sugar syrup (1:1 ratio of sugar and water – gently heat sugar and water in a pan until fully dissolved)

50 ml coffee liqueur (we’d recommend Mr Black but if you don’t have a coffee liqueur experiment with a sweet liqueur like Bailey’s instead)

Good handful of ice

Garnish – 3 coffee beans or chocolate powder


Martini glass or any cocktail glass you may have at home

Coffee maker (Espresso or capsule machine, cafetiere, stove top, filter machine, will all work)

Cocktail shaker (if you don’t have a cocktail shaker, try a reusable bottle!)

Strainer or sieve

Jigger or measuring jug / spoon


Brew your coffee and add 60 ml to your cocktail shaker to begin cooling

Add 100 ml of your base spirit

Add 40 ml of sugar syrup

Add 50 ml of coffee liqueur

Add a good handful of ice and shake, shake, shake!

Pour into your glass of choice through a strainer

Garnish, take a snap and enjoy!


Dark Chocolate Vegan Cookies

A rich dark chocolate cookie, studded with melting chocolate chunks and crunchy almond pieces, enriched with almond butter and sprinkled with a little sea salt.


43g Caster sugar

112g Soft light brown sugar

4g Salt

40g Almond pieces (For best results, use flaked almonds lightly smashed up, but whole almonds, chopped into small pieces will also work)

112g Dark chocolate pieces

205g Plain flour

20g Cocoa powder

1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of soda

65g Coconut oil

72g Almond butter

100g Golden syrup

40g Water


Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Pour the caster sugar, soft light brown sugar, flour, almond pieces, salt and chocolate pieces into a large bowl. (For best results sieve the cocoa, flour and bicarbonate of soda).

Mix the almond butter, oil, water and golden syrup together and add to the bowl.

Mix together with a wooden spoon and then bring the dough together using your hands.

Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Split your dough into 8 golf ball-sized balls and flatten slightly with the palm of your hand.

Bake for 8-10 minutes (This will vary depending on thickness – if the edges of cookie feel firm but centre is still soft, it should be ready to take out).

Leave to cool for 15 minutes. Enjoy!
