espresso martini

January 20, 2018 by Angie

Espresso martinis have been a special treat I could only get at fancier bars. Well, I figured out how to make a delicious one myself at home.


1 shot of espresso
1 shot of vodka
About 2/3 of a shot of Kahlua
Sugar, to taste


  1. First you need to make some espresso.
  2. Put some ice in a shaker. Pour in the espresso, vodka, and Kahlua. The Kahlua sweetens this enough in my opinion, but if you like a sweeter martini you can add some granulated sugar right into the shaker or you can make simple syrup and add a little of that. I don’t sweeten my morning soy lattes and I don’t miss the sugar in this drink either.
  3. Shake vigorously!
  4. Pour into a martini glass (reserving the ice in the shaker, obviously). Garnish with whole espresso beans if you have somebody to impress.
  5. Be really awake while drinking.
