Espresso Martini

Espresso Martini

They say necessity is the mother of invention. This is so often the case with drink recipes that I create. In this instance we had a friend over that wanted a drink. They were hoping for something delicious, but they were tired and asked if we had coffee. I decided to kill three stones with one rock and came up with this recipe for an espresso martini.  I have to say, I’m not the world’s biggest coffee fan, but this martini is incredible. Our other friend Carol said “If I was out, I’d be happy to pay $18 for this!” With a testimony like that, how could you not try it?! This martini is not shaken over ice, but instead is served slightly warm. (not hot, just room temperature liquors and the hot espresso.

  • 1 part Vanilla Vodka
  • 1 part Kahlua
  • 1 part Creme de Cacoa
  • 3/4 part Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur
  • 1 shot fresh espresso


Mix all ingredients in a cup or shaker and blend well, pour into martini glass.

Should you choose to, rim the glass with chocolate syrup or fudge. and cocoa powder or chocolate shavings. (syrup will run and drip, so try to rim the inside edge of the glass) A drizzle of chocolate syrup inside the glass is also a nice touch.
