I think this bar would be the easiest and simplest recipe on the blog. All of you need are 3 liquid ingredients and 5 minutes and then you drink and “know things”.
This is a recipe for an Espresso Martini, which would give you a strong cocktail – not the best for everybody to handle. But hey, I am not the person who will try and stop you. So let’s learn more about the recipe before drinking into the instructions part of it.
1. Vodka – made of potatoes, this is my favourite spirit. Any vodka would do. Though I would recommend something like a Belvedere or a Russian one for this recipe.
2. Coffee Liquer – the most common coffee liquor in India right is Kahlua and it’s priced economically. You’ll be able to get it at your local liquor store as well if you don’t already have it at home.
3. Espresso – I can’t stress on it but a freshly brewed espresso has its own charm. If using pods, Nespresso and Koffeeza is what I have tried and they will not disappoint. If you end up using another brand of coffee and it pays off – I would love to hear about it in the comments section below.
Martini & it’s Glassware
Typically Martini’s are known for their boldness. Made with Gin or Vodka with Vermouth, this drink is supposed to be had straight with a twist of either Lemon Rind or Olive.
The glass, still very contemporary is easily available. If you are looking to buy a box of 4 – Ocean should be your go-to brand on Amazon. If not just Martini’s, it’s a great way to have Cosmopolitan as well.
Another glass which would go really well with this cocktail would be “coupe glass”. Traditionally used by the Elite to sip their champagne, coupe glass has made it’s to many cocktail bars around the word is garnering lots of popularity.
