Caffeine Trivia #221

Just in time for New Year’s Eve….Espresso Martini

A classy cocktail, made with espresso, vodka and Kahlua. Replace the olives with coffee beans, and you have an espresso martini. Served shaken, not stirred.


  • 7 oz vodka (Stoli coffee-flavoured vodka is a good choice)
  • 1/2 oz Kahlua
  • 1/2 oz espresso
  • 4 coffee beans, for garnish


In a cocktail shaker, shake vodka with crushed ice for about 30 seconds. Add Kahlua and espresso and give another couple of shakes to combine. Let stand for a minute, to fully chill through. Strain into 2 chilled martini glasses, and add 2 coffee beans to each glass.
Serves 2
