"From the January 2003 issue of Bon Appetit, R.S.V.P. section. Jackie Campbell from Phoenix, AZ writes, "The Four Seasons Resort Aviara in Carlsbad has a very elegant bar. All the Martinis are served in gorgeous handblown glasses that are made in England. When I was there, I bought a few as souvenirs, and now I need the recipe for my favorite drink: the after-dinner Martini served there, which tastes like a White Russion with a shot of espresso.""

"This was great! I really like white russians and this is similar. Made for ZWT6."
"10 stars!!!!! I am always looking for different martini recipes and this one is fabulous. Great after dinner drink. Can't wait to make it again, mersaydees."
"This is good. I love drinks with kahlua in it and this one is no exception. Thanks for sharing!"
"This is really good, but very sweet. I ended up stirring the whipped cream into the drink to try and cut some of the sweetness. Overall, a very good dessert drink."
"Wow, what a great dessert drink! It has a wonderful, rich coffee flavor with sweetness from the Kahlua, and the homemade whipped cream adds a nice creaminess. It also looks really good! Thanks for posting, ~Sue"
"oh wow I don't know why I have not do this earlier. This is so good. DH found it a bit too sweet. It's true but I still enjoyed it. I think it would be great to cut back on the Kahlua to reduce the sweetness. I used store-bought whipped cream. It was great. Loved the taste. Thanks Mersaydees. Made for Beverege tag game."
"my lord this is so good! the only small change I made was I increased the espresso coffee only slightly, thanks for sharing this mersaydees this would make a wonderful after dinner drink to serve to guests!"
"Delicious! Only change I made was to use Stirrings' Espresso Martini Mix in the same proportion. This is on its way to becomming the "house martini". Made for Beverage Tag."
