Espresso Martini with a bottle of Kahlua on a white and grey background by Champagne and Sugarplums

Dangerously good with a healthy dose of liquor, this coffee cocktail is made with espresso, vodka and Kahlua. This is hands down one of our favourite cocktails. We’ll whip one up for a delicious pick-me-up or order one at the bar with – or instead of – dessert. Although it would pair with our Whiskey Bacon Cookies perfectly!

Shake – vigorously and until the whole shaker is ice cold to the touch. The stronger your shake, the more foam you’ll get!
