Best Espresso Martini

"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."

Ready In:




  • 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.

  1. Very good!! I just added a little milk in the shaker (rather than decorating with the cream) and they turned out great. Thanks for posting!!
  2. Fantastic! I made without cream and it was "to-die-for". Extremely good recipe!
  3. Super recipe...I made this on vacation last week and everybody loved it. I think I had to make this at least 3 nights!!
  4. Very good! My husband made these and he did shake them very well which left bubbles on top. So when I went to create the design it blended in so wasn't very noticeable. But that's fine because one taste and you know the rest of the story..................
  5. We weren't too sure about about an "espresso" martini. . .but being the adventurous type, we said "what the heck". WOW are these ever good and so pretty. Swirlling the cream was fun and made a pretty presentation. Thanks for sharing, pgserver6.
