Cocktail Chronicles - Espresso Martini

It would be silly of me to not include this old favourite in our Cocktail Chronicles! Personally, I am not a coffee drinker, so I have enlisted celebrity chef Jamie Oliver to provide you all with this Espresso Martini recipe. This is a sure fire way to win "Best Wedding of the Year" among your friendship group.

Espresso Martini

2 shots of your favourite vodka (My favourite is 42 Below from New Zealand, but you can always go for a bottom shelf or a top shelf, 42 Below lands right in the middle)
1 shot of coffee liqueur
1 shot of espresso coffee
Coffee beans to garnish

1. Fill your martini glass with ice
2. Pour the coffee, liqueur and vodka into a cocktail shaker and top with ice
3. Shake shake shake! As Jamie says, "Shake the living daylights out of it". The aim is to smash up the ice while cooling the drink.
4. Empty the ice from your martini glass
5. Using a strainer and/or sieve pour into your martini glass
6. Garnish with coffee beans

I hope you enjoy! As I said, an Espresso Martini is not on my list of cocktail favourites, but I know it's on everyone elses!

With Love,
