Espresso Martini is an atypical cocktail, which lends itself to being drunk after dinner, especially if accompanied by desserts like mud cake, chocolate cheesecake, and tiramisu.

The Espresso Martini recipe is straightforward and should be served in a frozen Martini cup and revolves around the bitter flavor of coffee 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 traditional 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 minor details, shake all the ingredients in the shaker carefully and energetically to obtain a consistent and plump foam, and don’t forget to garnish with a few coffee beans.
