Here is a super simple cocktail recipe for when you’re looking for an after-dinner drink.
Meet, our Coffee Martini — Instead of the usual espresso martini, we decided to mix this one up and make it with coffee for a few reasons: First, not everyone has an espresso machine and we want you all to be able to make this one! Second, you can use leftover morning coffee for this recipe! Just save your extra cooled coffee in a mason jar and keep it in the refrigerator until it’s time for cocktail hour.
It’s a delicious, quick, and easy cocktail that you will make over and over again. We love to serve these at the end of a dinner party.
- 1 1/2 oz vodka
- 2 oz brewed cold coffee (regular or decaf)
- 1/2 oz coffee liquor
- Combine all the above ingredients into an ice filled shaker.
- Shake well and pour into martini glass and serve.
