Make a profound presentation – the dark and lovely Espresso Martini!

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!

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! 

How to make an Espresso Martini

Pour the vodka, Kahlua and espresso into a shaker, let it sit for a few minutes and shake well. Pour the strained liquid into a chilled martini glass.
