Espresso Martini Recipe
This Christmas enjoy our gift to you: The Jonny, our Global Head of Coffee, Espresso Martini recipe.
60 ml brewed coffee (espresso is preferable, but you can use whatever coffee you have available at home)
100 ml base spirit (vodka is the traditional base spirit but experiment with gin or rum)
40 ml simple sugar syrup (1:1 ratio of sugar and water – gently heat sugar and water in a pan until fully dissolved)
50 ml coffee liqueur (we’d recommend Mr Black but if you don’t have a coffee liqueur experiment with a sweet liqueur like Bailey’s instead )
Good handful of ice
Garnish – 3 coffee beans or chocolate powder
Martini glass or any cocktail glass you may have at home
Coffee maker (Espresso or capsule machine, cafetiere, stove top, filter machine, will all work)
Cocktail shaker (if you don’t have a cocktail shaker, try a reusable bottle!)
Strainer or sieve
Jigger or measuring jug / spoon
