Espresso Martini Cocktail Recipe

There seems to be no end of “Martini” varieties which really have nothing to do with the original cocktail other than being served in a Martini glass. That being said, an Espresso Martini is one of the best, and certainly among the most popular.

To make an Espresso Martini, you’re going to want to brew up a batch of cold drip coffee. If you make your coffee by any method that uses hot or boiling water, it’s going to have a bitter taste when served cold. That’s because heat releases the acidic compounds in coffee beans and makes the brew taste “off” when chilled.

To make cold brew coffee, add half a cup of coarsely ground coffee beans to two cups of cold water in the bottom of a French press. If you don’t have one, you can just use an empty glass jar. Cover the mixture and put it in the fridge for at least twelve hours. When it’s ready, plunge the brew or filter through a coffee filter or fine mesh strainer. You’ll get enough coffee for several Espresso Martinis, and it will keep in the fridge for up to two weeks.

For a final gourmet touch, buy a bag of chocolate-covered coffee beans. Use them to garnish your Martini and enhance the caffeine buzz. Espresso Martinis – a tempting breakfast treat but best enjoyed after an evening meal.

Here’s the recipe for an Espresso Martini:


  • 30ml Vodka
  • 30ml Kahlua
  • 30ml Cold brew coffee
  • Coffee beans to garnish


  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice
  2. Add all ingredients
  3. Shake vigorously
  4. Strain into a chilled Martini glass
  5. Garnish with a couple of roasted or chocolate-covered coffee beans
