Shaken not Stirred – Espresso Martini

For this episode of Shaken not Stirred we bring you another a modern classic the espresso martini. This espresso martini is just one of many coffee-flavoured martini recipes being made today. We like this one because it uses chilled espresso that gives that caffeinated kick you just can’t duplicate with coffee liqueurs.

To make this intense and creamy drink you will need:

  • 50ml vanilla infused vodka (just steep a vanilla pod in vodka for a few weeks)
  • 50ml  Kahlua coffee liqueur
  • a shoot of espresso
  • 15ml sugar syrup

Add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice and mix well. Strain into a chilled glass and garnish with three coffee beans. Sit back and wait for the buzz!
