Espresso Martini

Hariet Waffenschmidt

The Espresso Martini is really more a decadent, liquid dessert than a drink and perfect for the festive season. Always a good way to impress your guests. Just make sure not to serve them after 5pm as everyone will be up all night.

Ingredients

1 part Vodka
1 part freshly brewed espresso coffee
1 part coffee liqueur (i.e. Kahlua)
4 coffee beans
Ice 

Instructions

  1. It’s just a matter of mixing booze with coffee. Shake the Kahlua, Vodka and espresso together with plenty of ice. Strain into a cocktail glass to get rid of all the small ice chips. Tip: Shake for at least 10 seconds for optimal frothiness.
