Espresso Martini

Make no mistake. We won't mix coffee with Martini. The only thing this recipe has in common with a Martini is the glass we'll be making the drink in. If you don't have one like it, that's okay. But if you can get one, you'll definitely enjoy your Espresso Martini a lot more.

The creator of the drink is the world-famous British bartender Dick Bradsell.

Ingredients for Espresso Martini:
  • ice
  • 5 cl of vodka
  • 1 cl Kahlúa liqueur
  • a little sugar syrup (e.g. Monin)
  • 1 shot of espresso
  • a few coffee beans for garnish

Kentucky Coffee

This is the most cowboy drink I'm going to offer you today. It's called Kentucky Coffee, because in this case,2 shots of espresso are enhanced with a good American bourbon.

I recommend extra cautionwith this drink , as it is very easy to drink and you quickly lose track of the number of glasses you have consumed.

  • double espresso
  • 30% cream
  • 1 teaspoon cane sugar

Whatever drink you choose from the recipes listed, please drink in moderation. I wish you a peaceful celebration of the arrival of 2023 and may you prepare and drink only the best coffee in the best company during that year.
