Matteo Allegro’s Espressotini


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 🙂
