Espresso Martini

espresso martini

Perfect for an after dinner conversation, espresso martinis can have a touch of caffeine (or not), a delicious creaminess and a hint of delicious coffee flavor. Personally I like to make mine decaf with a hint of chocolate and hazelnut. If I’m running low on any of my usual ingredients, it is extremely fun to experiment with anything else on hand. Don’t have vodka? Try with rum!


Equipment: Shaker, strainer, coffee maker or espresso machine, coupe or martini glass

1½ oz vodka

½ oz Frangelico

½ oz Kahlua coffee liqueur

½ oz chocolate liqueur

½ oz milk

1 oz fresh coffee or espresso

Fresh ground coffee for garnish


Combine vodka, Frangelico, Kahlua, chocolate liqueur, milk and coffee or espresso in shaker with ice. Shake vigorously for 20-25 seconds and strain into chilled martini glass or coupe. Garnish with a sprinkle of freshly ground coffee. Cheers!
