This beverage recipe is for those who want to serve a fun and fast drink before the main meal starts, or after dinner for a small drinkable treat! I got it from Cleo Coyle’s mystery book called Billionaire Blend. As is explained in the novel, an espressotini is an espresso martini. This yields a single serving.
Matteo Allegro’s Espressotini
You will need:
-1 and 1/2 ounces vodka (vanilla-flavored is preferred)
-1 and 1/2 ounces Kahlúa
-1 ounce espresso (chilled to room temperature)
-1 ounce white crème de cacao (or Baileys Irish Cream)
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour all ingredients over the ice. Shake well. Strain into a martini glass rimmed with a mixture of cocoa and sugar or fine shavings of chocolate.
FYI: 1 ounce of liquid measure equals 2 tablespoons or 6 teaspoons.
Let’s make a toast to the end of Winter! Maybe it will happen sooner if we do 🙂
