Espresso Martini Recipe to Shake Up Your Evening

Hey, coffee lovers and cocktail enthusiasts! If you're looking to elevate your game with a burst of caffeine and sophistication, we've got the recipe for you! 

We're shaking things up with a classic cocktail that combines the rich flavors of Blank Canvas Coffee Espresso with the sophistication of a classic martini. Check out our espresso martini recipe for a caffeinated evening!

Espresso Martini Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 shots of Blank Canvas Coffee Espresso beans (brewed and chilled)
  • 1 shot of vodka (we like Grey Goose or Van Gogh espresso vodka) 
  • 1/2 shot of coffee liqueur (we like Kahlua)
  • 1/2 shot of Bailey's Irish cream (or 1/2 shot of simple syrup works too)
  • Ice cubes
  • Optional: coffee beans or chocolate shavings for garnish

Espresso Martini Recipe Instructions:

1. Brew Your Blank Canvas Coffee Espresso:
Start by brewing a strong cup of Blank Canvas Coffee Espresso beans. Let it  cool down to room temperature, or pop it in the fridge for a quick chill.

2. Prepare Your Cocktail Shaker:
Grab your trusty cocktail shaker and fill it with ice cubes. The colder, the better!

3. Measure and Pour:
Time to add the star ingredient! Measure out 2 shots of your chilled Blank Canvas Coffee Espresso and pour them into the shaker. Follow it up with 1 shot of vodka for that extra kick, 1/2 shot each of coffee liqueur and Bailey's (or simple syrup) to balance out the flavors.

4. Shake, Shake, Shake:
Secure the lid on your cocktail shaker and give it a good shake – we're talking James Bond levels of smoothness here! Shake it up until the outside of the shaker feels nice and frosty.

5. Strain and Serve:
Grab your favorite martini glass and strain from the shaker into the glass. Admire the dark hues and rich aromas and the look of "impressed" wash over your guests faces. 

6. Garnish and Enjoy:
Garnish your Blank Canvas Coffee Martini with a few coffee beans or a sprinkle of chocolate shavings on top. It's almost too pretty to drink. Almost.

There you have it – the perfect blend of coffee and cocktails, brought to life with the bold flavors of Blank Canvas Coffee Espresso. If it's winding  down after a long day or kicking off the weekend with friends, this coffee martini will be your go-to fancy favorite. Cheers to mixing creativity and caffeine!
