- Vodka Cocktails
December 1, 2015
We all love a martini- an espresso martini is particularly delicious though and excellent at adding a bit of ‘zing‘ to one’s day! Rumour has it that way back when in the 1980’s, a lonely bar man, Dick Bradshaw, was asked by a customer to create a drink that would “wake me up”. Bradshaw threw something simple together, and the result of that was this delicious beverage. This makes it the perfect drink for those long nights playing casino games; either in Las Vegas or at home. So do you want to try it for yourself? Of course you do! Here’s how to make your own.
For one glass of Espresso Martini you will need:
– 50 ml of vodka
– 25 ml of espresso
– 25 ml of Caffe Lolita liqueur
– A small amount of ice
– Three coffee beans
Put the espresso, vodka, liqueur and ice into a cocktail shaker and shake very thoroughly to combine all of these ingredients together.
Strain the resulting liquid mixture into a chilled cocktail glass.
Garnish the cocktail with three coffee beans- these should be placed on top of the drink, next to each other.
Serve to a guest, friend or to yourself and wait for your taste buds to start tingling with the shocking bursts of energy that this martini provides. Enjoy!
