Espresso Martini Recipe


Let’s talk about how to make an espresso martini at home. This easy espresso martini recipe is a bold and sweet cocktail with a foamy top that is a total crowd pleaser!

- vodka - Kahlua or another coffee liqueur - hot espresso, strong coffee, or prepared instant coffee. - Coffee beans to garnish, optional


Gather your ingredients. Prepare your espresso or coffee, measure out the vodka and kahlua, and add plenty of ice to a cocktail shaker.

Add ingredients to cocktail shaker. Pour vodka, kahlua, and hot espresso or coffee over the ice in your cocktail shaker, making sure to add the hot espresso last so the ice doesn’t immediately melt.

Shake it up! Seal the cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for 15-30 seconds. Properly aerating the cocktail is what helps build the foam on your finished drink so use some muscle power!

Strain and serve. Strain into a glass (chilled if you’d like), garnish with coffee beans, and enjoy!
