Espresso martinis are a classy cocktail that combines coffee liqueur, espresso, and vodka which have become a very popular drink in the past couple of years. The key to a perfect-tasting espresso martini is finding the balance between sweet and bitter. Its rich, and creamy flavour makes it desirable, while the shot of espresso will give you an added boost of energy to take on the day or night! You can check out my espresso martini reel here.
