Even reading the words Espresso Martini is enough to get your taste buds tingling! We all know dry January doesn’t exist this year, so why not fix yourself a drink over the weekend… or in the week day to get you through lockdown! Here’s the perfect Espresso Martini recipe...
You will need:
20ml Espresso (If you have an espresso machine, use this… an alternative is Nescafe Azera. TIP: make this beforehand to let it chill)
3 whole coffee beans
Lots of ice
A martini glass (If you don’t have a martini glass you can go trendy with a tumbler glass)
Chill your glass
Pour some ice into your chosen glass and fill with cold water to chill your glass whilst you make your cocktail.
Mix your ingredients
Pour a handful of ice into your cocktail shaker and add the vodka, Kahlúa and espresso over the ice. Seal your cocktail shaker and shake vigorously (this will allow you to have the foam on top).
Empty your glass with ice and water and strain your cocktail mix into your glass. Give it a good shake as you pour to get the froth out. It’s all about the bean placement… use you 3 coffee beans to place on top of your cocktail in the center.
Finally… Sit back and enjoy!
