Coffeetini ~ Coffee comes to Happy Hour!

Coffeetini ~ Coffee comes to Happy Hour!
The Coffee Martini
1 fresh espresso
1 shot vodka
1 shot coffee liqueur
Combine fresh streamed espresso, vodka, and your favourite coffee liqueur with ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake to mix and chill, then strain into cocktail glass. Top off with frothed milk foam, and garnish with chocolate olive.

I recommend doubling up on this recipe and pouring it into two glasses ... it is best when enjoyed with a friend! (-;


The chocolate olive is actually a small solid chocolate "egg". Just stick one on each end of a toothpick for a garnish. The Chocolate Oranges that split into wedges are a great visual and tasty too!

If you like flavoured vodkas, use your favourite. Vanilla vodka is currently very popular.

Also other liqueurs can be used in place of the coffee liqueur. Irish Cremes, like Bailey's and Caroline's are a nice change, or try a shot of Gran Marnier, Amaretto, or Frangelica.
