I love espresso martini’s. My family on the other hand love a Baileys Irish Cream over ice after dinner. I don’t blame them, just the list of ingredients that goes into Irish cream is mouth-watering. Cream, Irish whiskey, vanilla and chocolate, just for starters. The Bailey’s team did go all out to develop a pudding in a glass. I’m 100% for it but I want my coffee too!

This was enough of an excuse for me to get the shaker out and make a new drink, I made us these. They are the perfect after dinner drink with all the lift of coffee with a smooth creamy finish. I’m not even going to try and give you a booze free alternative to this. It’s a drink that is not for the fainthearted.

It is beyond delicious.

You will need:

  • Espresso
  • Ice
  • Vodka
  • Irish cream liquor
  • Kahlua
  • Cocktail Shaker
  • Cocktail Glasses

To Mix:

  • Add 50ml freshly made espresso, 20ml Kahlua and 20ml Vodka to a shaker.
  • Add lots of Ice and shake.
  • Strain into a cocktail glass.
  • Slowly pour 25ml of Irish cream over a teaspoon to the side of the glass.
  • This will create a band of coffee liquor that you will sip the cream through.

Enjoy the smooth chilled Irish espresso martini by the fire or with friends – delicious 🍸⚑

Some cocktail kits I love:

Many cocktails can be made without a shaker but this one really does benefit from a good hard spin in a Boston shaker. If you have one great, if not you could probably do your best with a pint glass and a smaller tumbler. Here is some inspiration if you are in the mood for some shopping.
