DharMag April 2018 Espresso Martini cocktail: the original recipe with ingredients, doses and food pairings

Espresso Martini cocktail recipe with ingredients and doses, best vodka drink Espresso Martini is an atypical cocktail, very particular, which lends itself to being drunk after dinner, especially if accompanied by sweets, mud cake, chocolate cheesecake, and tiramisu.

The Espresso Martini recipe is very simple and should be served in a frozen Martini cup and revolves around the bitter flavor of coffee, which is mixed with sugar syrup and coffee liqueur. The vodka gives consistency and structure to the cocktail but does not add any flavor, on the other hand, there is no need, the mixture is already satisfying and has an enveloping aftertaste.

In practice, it is a shaken coffee reinforced with alcohol, not very different as a concept from the classic “espresso corretto with grappa**, the classic old man way to drink coffee in Italy. The original Espresso Martini recipe includes vodka, but I strongly suggest you try it with an excellent grappa, for a more nuanced and intriguing coffee cocktail.

In winter it is invigorating and helps to chase the cold, in summer serve it with flakes of ice, like granita. Take care of the appearance of this drink, pay attention to the smallest details, shake all the ingredients in the shaker carefully and energetically to obtain a consistent and plump froth and don’t forget to garnish with a few coffee beans.
