This delicious Espresso Martini will kick start your evening. The Ketel One website says this drink was created in a bar in London, called the Soho Brasserie, for a model that asked the bartender to make her something to ‘wake her up’…..well I agree, it sure does!
There is nothing like an Espresso Vodka Martini after a great dinner. Nothing can compare and it will definitely kick start your evening.

Ingredients you’ll need to make an Espresso Martini
Vodka, Kahlua and Espresso. That’s it, simple.
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 my favorite. The shaker doesn’t leak, and the cap is a measuring cup measuring from 1/2 to 1.5 ounces. Dishwasher safe, you can’t go wrong with OXO.
And remember 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 on the shelf in the freezer. The Crafthouse by Fortessa is tall and elegant, but more difficult to find a safe spot in the freezer. I love them both!
