Making an espresso martini is fairly easy. You need a cocktail shaker, vodka (vanilla vodka if you have it), coffee liquor (Kahlúa), creme de cacao, a shot of espresso, and some espresso beans for a garnish. The only other thing you need is some stamina to shake for 20 seconds. If you want a nice foam on top, there are a few tips to make you look like a pro.
- Put all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake, shake, shake for at least 20 seconds.
- Strain in a martini glass. If you shook it enough, there will be enough froth on top to hold 3 coffee beans as a garnish.
Drink responsibly. If you are under the legal drinking age limit for your state or country, this recipe is not for you. Sorry.
