Editor Recipe Notes

What to say about the Espresso Martini?

Well, in the end, it is a straightforward recipe. But it’s sometimes really tricky to get the proper foam and taste. Every single shot of Espresso tastes different. So you can at least use good vodka, a good coffee liqueur that is not too sweet on the palate, same for the vanilla liqueur.

We prebatch the Vodka, coffee, and Vanilla Liqueur and keep it chilled in a bottle. That works well because the Espresso is hot. We first pour the premix into the shaker, add the Espresso, and then the ice. Quickly close the shaker and shake well for about 30 seconds.

My thoughts are always… “please look nice,” and I am always happy if it works well.
