Espresso Martini Recipe


Espresso Martini 
2 oz vodka 
1/2 oz coffee liqueur Kahlua or Tia Maria 
1 oz espresso freshly brewed or cold brew concentrate ( no instant coffee)
1/2 oz simple syrup 
Garnish coffe beans


Brew the coffee and let it cool completely 
Add ice to a cocktail shaker then add the cold coffee simple syrup Kahlúa and vodka. 
Shake very hard so the form is formed then strain it quickly into a martini glass top with coffee beans. 

Make sure to cool the coffee completely after brewing it or it’ll melt the ice and you won’t have a nice chilled cocktail. Make sure to shake the cocktail extra hard so you create the lovely foam on top and when pouring the cocktail into your glass do it swiftly to ensure the foam ends on top. If you don’t have simple syrup you can make it but bringing equal amount of sugar and the water to boil until the sugar has dissolved turn it off the heat and leave it to cool completely before using.
