Espresso Martini, Tiramisu

Ta-dah! Espresso martinis! When I made the tiramisu, I remembered just how much I love the combination of rich coffee and alcohol, so I thought... why not whip up some espresso martinis to go with? We had all the ingredients anyway, and I don't really need an excuse for caffeinated alcoholic deliciousness. Here's the recipe - super easy! Enjoy.

Espresso Martini
Sarah's version of a classic recipe

30 millilitres espresso
30 millilitres vodka
30 millilitres Kahlua

Pour all ingredients in a cocktail shaker over ice, shake vigorously and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a coffee bean or a dusting of cocoa powder to serve.
Serves 1
And while we're here, I thought I might take the opportunity to trawl through my backlog of photos and share some photos of espresso martinis I've had over the past couple of years. I like having them if I'm going out on a Friday night after work for a little pick-me-up. Yay!
