Espresso Martini Recipe
A must-have on any entertaining menu, this espresso martini is equal parts creamy and sweet!
WHAT YOU NEED
9 ounces vodka
1.5 ounces Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur
1.5 ounces Kahlua Coffee Liqueur
1 ounce simple syrup
1 ounce half and half
½ cup strong brewed Don Francisco’s Organico Espresso
½ ounce dark chocolate, finely grated
6 whole coffee beans
HOW TO MAKE
For the rim:
Use a microplane grater or zester to grate dark chocolate onto a small saucer. Fill another saucer with simple syrup. Turn a martini or coupe glass upside down into the simple syrup, covering the rim.
Next, transfer the glass to the chocolate shavings and dip as necessary to cover the syrup (and rim) with chocolate.
For the cocktail:
Combine all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until chilled and strain into prepared glasses.
Garnish with coffee beans and remaining chocolate, if desired.
