Espresso Martini

Great as a cocktail by itself, or as an after dinner drink, the Espresso Martini is perfect for entertaining, and an ideal drink to include at parties and dinners for the holiday season.

Made with vodka, Kahlua and coffee, it is an elegant version of a cross between a Black Russian and an Irish Coffee, and is ultra simple to make. We like it using our Spanish Torrefacto coffee, as it adds an extra rich creamy coffee flavor to the drink, but regular coffee works just as well. Be sure to have plenty of coffee on hand, as one is never enough!

Espresso Martini Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • 1 ounce Kahlua
  • 1 shot of freshly brewed, cream topped espresso
  1. Pour the ingredients into a shaker over ice and shake well.
  2. Serve in a Martini glass.
  3. Garnish with three roasted coffee beans.
