Espresso Martini

Make a delicious three ingredient espresso martini at home


  • 1 oz espresso or very strong coffee
  • 2 oz vodka
  • 1 oz coffee liqueur


  • Brew the Espresso. You can use any espresso machine or even brew a super strong coffee in your coffee machine. Typically I use our Ninja coffee system specialty setting.
  • Let it cool. I like to let the coffee cool a bit before making this drink.
  • Shake It Up. Place the espresso, vodka, and Kahlua or your preferred coffee liqueur in a cocktail shaker with ice.
  • Strain + Serve. Strain the espresso martini into a cocktail glass. I love my coup glass for martinis lately. Garnish with 3 coffee beans or a dusting of ground coffee—but honestly, I like it without a garnish.
