If you like coffee, you are going to love this martini. The vanilla vodka is a must but I've made many of them without the creme de cocoa.
- Fill a cocktail shaker 2/3 full with ice.
- Add ingredients and shake well until very cold.
- Strain into a martini glass.
- In a plastic bottle with a narrow tip (candy melts bottle from a craft store or a picnic ketchup bottle from the dollar store), add some heavy cream.
- Starting from the center of the drink, start a spiral and cirle to the outside of the glass.
- Then take a stirrer or a toothpick and starting in the center of the drink, drag the stirrer to the edge of the glass.
- Return to center of the drink, and repeat procedure in"pie segments" to make a"web" with the heavy cream (or make any design that you'd like).
- Wow, after my second espresso martini tonight, that was rough describing-lol.
- Of course, the heavy cream is optional but it does make it look so pretty.
- Just be careful how many of these you consume because, like a spider lures it's prey-- you get the picture.
