There are some recipes that are just classics, including cocktail recipes. I'm not one for martinis, but give me a coffee-infused cocktail and I am all over it. I don't know why I've never made an espresso martini before this, but I can say with sure confidence this cocktail is the best thing since sliced bread and you must make it immediately. Espresso, vodka, coffee liquor, and bailey's, need I say more? If you're a coffee lover, you must try this!
An espresso martini is known for being an after-dinner drink, a small pick me up after a filling and scrumptious meal. Typically made with espresso, Kahlua (coffee liquor), and vodka, these ingredients are staples in an espresso martini. Of course, heavy on the vodka, because hello, this is a martini after all.
Espresso is a stronger, concentrated form of coffee, and typically sipped in small shots. Whereas coffee is brewed at varied strengths, served in larger vessels, and typically contains more water. Espresso is perfect for martinis as you don't need much to taste the flavor of the coffee, and is strong enough to compliment the vodka and coffee liquor. If you only have coffee beans to brew at home, it's no big deal, brew the coffee and place in the fridge to cool for the martini.
All you really need for this recipe is a few simple bar tools and you'll be sipping on deliciousness in no time.
The best part about this espresso martini recipe is that there's not much required other than the staple ingredients.
Making this recipe is quick, easy, and will be worth brewing espresso for!
No, you can opt to make this espresso martini without Bailey's, but I happen to love the creamy flavor and texture it provides.
You can add in one egg white to the shaker and shake vigorously. You don't have to, but it gives a flavorless froth to the end result. I typically just shake the ingredients really well which gives enough foam for me.
