Coconut Espresso Martini
I love espresso martinis but when I tried this Coconut Espresso Martini it had a tropical twist, was a little nutty and slightly sweet. Get ready to be WOWed!
Espresso Martinis are the perfect after dinner drink. One night I was out with friends and one of my friends, Dawn, started to describe this martini recipe she found called a Coconut Espresso Martini. I like coconut, I like espresso, so the next evening I decided to try this new martini recipe. Making this Coconut Espresso Martini takes a few minutes more because of the fancy coconut rimmed martini glass but it was well worth the wait.
Ingredients that you’ll need to make this martini
You’ll need a coconut flavored Vodka. I’ve found that Veil Vodka is a good, ‘flavored’ vodka. I actually use it for my NCAA Jello Shot recipes that come in Chocolate, Gingerbread, Whipped Cream, Caramel, Coconut and many other flavors of Vodka.
Next the Kahlua coffee flavored liqueur and Bailey’s Irish Cream. Finally, let’s not forget the espresso. I have a Nespresso coffee maker so whipping up a cup of espresso is quick and easy. They are not inexpensive, but I’ve been using mine daily for over 2 years now so I’ve gotten my moneys worth. And having fresh espresso in your martini really makes all of the difference.
Next, you can’t make a great martini without a great shaker. I have at least a dozen shakers but this one from OXO is by far my favorite. It doesn’t leak, and the cap is a measuring cup that will measure from 1/2 ounce to 1.5 ounces. And it is dishwasher safe! You can’t go wrong with OXO.
And don’t forget the chilled martini glass. Nothing is worse than a martini in a warm glass. Check out these 2 that I highly recommend. Joy Jolt set of 6 martini glasses in multi-colors and Crafthouse by Fortessa, set of 4 martini glasses. They are both dishwasher safe. Joy Jolt is a short martini glass, good for stacking in the freezer and the Crafthouse by Fortessa is tall and elegant, but it’s harder to find a good spot to lay it down in the freezer.
