Espresso Martini

Espresso Martini cocktailDaylight Saving Time pulls a trick on us. It’s like everyone around us, including ourselves, is jet-lagged by an hour. This coffee-infused martini might not remedy the problem, but it could give you the boost you need to get through the weekend.

We recommend using decent vodka and good-quality espresso. If you have a home espresso maker, you can pull a few shots and cool them quickly in the freezer. You want to mix the cocktail using chilled espresso so as not to dilute it with ice. This is a great time to have some bottled, cold-brewed espresso (unsweetened) on hand.

Espresso Martini Recipe
Yields 1 cocktail 

2 ounces vodka (we recommend Tito’s)
1 ounce espresso
1/2 ounce coffee liqueur (such as Kahlua)
1/4 ounce simple syrup (1:1)
3 whole coffee beans for garnish

Combine all the ingredients in a shaker and fill with ice. Shake until chilled and foamy; strain into chilled cocktail glass and garnish by floating coffee beans on top.
