About the Espresso Martini
The Espresso Martini, a sophisticated and energizing cocktail, perfectly blends the richness of coffee with the allure of a classic martini. This enticing concoction is a harmonious marriage of freshly brewed espresso, premium vodka, coffee liqueur, and a touch of simple syrup. When shaken vigorously and strained into a chilled martini glass, it unveils a velvety texture and a seductive frothy crema on top. The Espresso Martini tantalizes the senses, delivering a bold caffeine kick intertwined with the smoothness of spirits.
A quick cocktail recipe
This is a must-try cocktail. This is how you do it:
- Brew a shot of espresso and allow it to cool to room temperature.
- Fill a cocktail shaker with ice to chill the ingredients and the shaker itself.
- Add the vodka, coffee liqueur, espresso, and simple syrup to the shaker.
- Close the shaker and shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds to ensure everything is well mixed and chilled.
- Strain the mixture into a chilled martini glass using a fine mesh strainer to catch any ice shards.
- The shaken cocktail should form a frothy crema on top.
- Garnish with a few coffee beans on the crema for a visually appealing touch.
- Serve immediately and enjoy the rich and invigorating flavors of the Espresso Martini.
Remember, you can adjust the simple syrup to your desired level of sweetness, and the coffee liqueur can also be adjusted based on your preference for the intensity of the coffee flavor.
