Espresso Martini

Like a lot of people, I'm not really a beer drinker and when at home I occasionally like to have a drink or three! Today I decided I would try and do something different, so here it goes... My home made Espresso Martini's which are surprisingly easy to make.

I love my Alessi cocktail shaker!
First, as you would with any task, make sure you have the right tools and ingredients.
 
You need a cocktail shaker (if you don't have one, you can use two glasses pushed together like a boston shaker, I would advise that you use one glass and one either metal or plastic), chilled martini glasses, a strainer and a jigger spirit measure.

To make an espresso martini you need:
- Ice (crushed)
- 2 shot Vodka
- 1 1/2 shot Espresso
- 1/2 shot Pure Cane sugar syrup
- 1/4 shot Kahlua Coffee Liqueur

Place all the ingredients into to the shaker and shake to your hearts content, open your shaker and pour your drink through a strainer, as an option you can finish off by adding two or three coffee beans as a garnish floating atop in the middle of your glass.


Strain your drink directly into your chilled glasses.
Et voilĂ , sit back and enjoy! In my mind, this is the best way to get both caffeine and alcohol into your body.
