Espresso Martini


The Espresso Martini is a classic cocktail that combines the bold flavors of espresso coffee and vodka with a touch of sweetness. It originated in the 1980s and has since become a favorite among coffee and cocktail lovers alike. The rich and smooth texture, coupled with the intense coffee aroma, makes it a perfect after-dinner drink or a pick-me-up during social gatherings. Its sophisticated blend of flavors and enticing presentation make the Espresso Martini a popular choice for those seeking a unique and indulgent cocktail experience.


1 1/2 ounces vodka

1 ounce coffee liqueur (such as Kahlua)

1 ounce freshly brewed espresso

1/2 ounce simple syrup (optional, for sweetness)

Ice cubes


Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.

Add vodka, coffee liqueur, espresso, and simple syrup (if desired) to the shaker.

Shake vigorously for about 15 seconds to chill the drink and create a frothy texture.
