Midnight Espresso Martini

Indulge in the seductive allure of the Midnight Espresso Martini, where the rich intensity of espresso meets the velvety smoothness of premium vodka. This sophisticated concoction offers a symphony of flavors, combining the bold bitterness of coffee with the sweetness of coffee liqueur, all harmoniously crowned by a frothy crema. Sip under the moonlit sky and let the Midnight Espresso Martini awaken your senses.

Recipe: Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ oz Premium Vodka
  • 1 oz Coffee Liqueur (e.g., Kahlúa)
  • 1 oz Freshly Brewed Espresso, chilled
  • ½ oz Simple Syrup (adjust to taste)
  • Ice
  • Coffee Beans (for garnish)

Glassware: Martini Glass

Garnish: A few coffee beans scattered on the foam


  1. Prepare Your Glass: Chill the martini glass in the freezer or by filling it with ice water.
  2. Combine Ingredients: In a cocktail shaker, add the premium vodka, coffee liqueur, chilled espresso, and simple syrup.
  3. Add Ice: Fill the shaker with ice, securing the lid tightly.
  4. Shake: Vigorously shake the mixture for about 15-20 seconds. This helps to chill the ingredients and create a frothy texture.
  5. Empty: Empty the martini glass of any ice water.
  6. Strain: Double strain the shaken mixture into the chilled martini glass using a fine mesh strainer to catch any ice chips or coffee grounds. The cocktail should settle into two distinct layers: a deep, dark bottom layer and a creamy, foamy top layer.
  7. Garnish: Gently drop a few coffee beans on top of the foam for an aromatic garnish.
  8. Serve: Serve immediately and enjoy the captivating marriage of flavors.

Note: To make simple syrup, combine equal parts of water and granulated sugar in a saucepan. Heat and stir until the sugar dissolves completely. Let it cool before using. You can adjust the amount of simple syrup to achieve your preferred level of sweetness.

Whether you're a coffee aficionado or a cocktail enthusiast, the Midnight Espresso Martini promises an enchanting experience that bridges the gap between day and night, energizing your palate and spirit simultaneously.
