  • Espresso Maker
  • Martini Glass
  • Cocktail Shaker


  • 2 Oz (60ml) Vodka
  • 1-2 Oz Coffee Liqueur
  • 15 Ml Espresso Coffee Freshly Brewed 
  • 3 Medium Cubes Ice Cubes
  • 1 Squirt Whipped Cream
  • 2 Individual Coffee Beans


  • Prepare your cocktail shaker (or alternative) and martini glass. Add as much ice as you prefer to the glass. We recommend adding 3-4 cubes that are medium-sized, enough so that your drink isn’t watered down.
  • Next pour the espresso, coffee liqueur, and vodka into the cocktail mixer. Shake well.
  • Pour the mixture over your ice into the martini glass.
  • Add whipped cream on top with some coffee beans as a garnish (optional).


You don’t have to add ice to the coffee martini. Just remove ice from the recipe and follow the instructions the same. Some people prefer not to have ice, so their drink doesn’t get watered down.
If you want to upgrade and experiment more on your coffee martini, you can either use Baileys or Kahlua as your coffee liqueur. Some people prefer to have their coffee martini creamy. 
If you want bolder coffee flavors, you can increase the amount of espresso.
