Spirit Scene: Espresso Martini

I’m participating in Dry July, so here’s something alcoholic I prepared earlier: ESPRESSO MARTINI

Espresso Martinis are one of my favourite cocktails. They combine two things I love: Coffee and Alcohol. I really wanted to get this right!

After researching a few recipes, I settled on the most common:


30ml Kahlua

30ml Vodka

30ml espresso

Coffee beans to garnish


Pour Kahlua, Vodka, and espresso into a cocktail shaker with ice, shake well.

Strain into a martini glass.

Top with a few coffee beans.


Freshly brewed espresso is essential – and I recommend chilling your martini glass.
