Espresso Martini

You need to know something about me.

I love coffee.

No – you don’t understand – love coffee.  I love it morning, afternoon, evening…all freaking day is one long coffee break.

This cocktail is the ultimate offering to The Goddess Caffeina.  Coffee, chocolate and vodka.  Really…do we require anything more?

Espresso martini? Yes please! Sign me up. But do espresso martinis simultaneously make you tired and wired? We’ll just have to try one to find out, right?

Recipe from 5 Ingredient Fix cookbook by Claire Robinson


3 ounces vanilla vodka
1 ounce dark creme de cacao
2 ounces brewed espresso, room temperature or chilled
Whipped cream, for garnish
Bittersweet chocolate, for garnish

To make 

In a chilled cocktail shaker, combine ingredients, except for whipped cream and chocolate until chilled, and
strain into 2 chilled martini glasses.  Float a layer of whipped cream over the top. Using a vegetable peeler, shave some dark chocolate on top of each glass.
