Devised for a famous supermodel in a bar in London in 1983 when she requested a top mixologist for a drink that would wake her up and ****** her up....
The resulting drink was the Espresso Martini made from:
1 part Kahlua
2 parts vodka
1 shot of freshly brewed espresso coffee
Start by adding the kahlua into a cocktail shaker, then the vodka and finally the shot of coffee.
And shake to give it the froth by which a good Espresso Martini is judged the world over.
Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a few fresh espresso beans.
Kahlua is the most popular choice of coffee liquer, but some people prefer it with Tia Maria which is a little less sweet.
