You’ve just finished eating the special weekend dinner you cooked all day long and now its time to relax with an after dinner cocktail.
Boozehounds and “coffeehounds” alike (or maybe you’re one in the same, like me!) can sit back and savor this enjoyable caffeinated cocktail, the Espresso Martini. I love the addition of chilled espresso to the already prevalent coffee and chocolate liqueurs. The espresso balances about the sweeter liqueur profiles, perhaps even offering slight bitter tones, making the Espresso Martini well rounded to top off a fantastic evening of eating and drinking at home.
- 1 1/2 parts ABSOLUT Vodka
- 3/4 part Kahlua Coffee Liqueur
- 1/4 part Hiram Walker White Creme de Cacao
- 1 part chilled espresso
Shake ingredients well with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a coffee bean on top.
Make sure to check back in tomorrow for one more post as we spearhead our way into National Martini Day on June 19th. I look forward to celebrating with you!
