Espresso Martini

Black the new black

The Espresso Martini is a sumptuous mix of vodka, coffee liquor and espresso that gets people giggling with excitement at its mere mention. It’s rich, indulgent and creamy, and deliciously confusing – coffee and vodka simply shouldn’t be allowed to taste this good together, but they do. The liqueur has a wicked sweetness while the coffee gives it a rich depth, whilst the vodka delivers that necessary kick that lets you know you’re doing something naughty. It’s all finished off with the thick, luxurious, creamy froth that sits at the top of the glass.

Recipe
Serves 6

3⁄4 cup espresso
1⁄2 cup Tia Maria
1⁄2 cup vanilla vodka
11⁄2 tablespoons agave nectar
Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake to chill. Strain into 6 chilled martini glasses. Serve.
