In the old days the end of a meal would be completed with a warming Irish Coffee and nothing wrong with that, but the Espresso Martini has fast taken over as a favourite and we bring to you another dimension to the coffee cocktail.
Silky salted caramel combines with the classic Espresso Martini to create an indulgent cocktail that’s ideal as a liquid dessert or the perfect way to give your evening a continued buzz.
2 tbsp caramel sauce
1 tsp Sea salt
50ml Hot espresso
50ml Coffee liqueur
Cocoa powder for dusting
3 Coffee beans to garnish
Mix together the hot espresso with the caramel sauce and sea salt, stir together so the caramel and salt melt. Place this into the fridge or freezer to cool completely.
In a cocktail shaker add ice cubes, then the cooled espresso, vodka and coffee liqueur. Shake it well for 1 minute. Then pour into martini glasses through a fine strainer, making sure to add all the liquid. Dust half the top with cocoa powder and garnish with 3 coffee beans. Serve immediately.
