Our version of the Espresso Martini is only slightly sweet, so that the full, rich, coffee flavour can shine through. This cocktail is guaranteed to be the perfect end to your night, although you may not want to stop at one!*
(Makes 2 martinis)
100 ml vodka
50 ml coffee liqueur of your choice (Kahlua or Tia Maria are both very nice)
2 shots espresso
1 -2 tsp simple syrup if you need any extra sweetness
- Fill a cocktail shaker with ice
- Add all of the ingredients and shake well – at least 20 seconds to create some foam
- Strain into 2 martini glasses
- Spoon any foam left in the shaker on top of each drink
- Garnish with 3 coffee beans for that classic touch.
If you don’t have any coffee beans for garnish, try a sprinkle of pure cocoa powder for some extra depth of flavour.
Enjoy playing around with the ratios of the ingredients, just like we all like our coffee a little differently, the same is true of the espresso martini.
