On the second day of Christmas my bartender mixed for me, a marvelous mocha espresso martini…
This recipe came from my husband's aunt who is a bartender in FL. It was one of my favorite drinks; I love espresso and chocolate. We were pretty much fighting over who got this drink; my mother-in-law won out in the end.
Mocha Espresso Martini
makes 1 (8 oz) cocktail
2.5 oz espresso or strong coffee (cooled)
2 oz Smirnoff vanilla vodka
½ oz Godiva liqueur (dark chocolate)
1 oz Kahlùa peppermint mocha liqueur
½ oz peppermint schnapps
Measure out ½ oz of espresso and set aside.
Add the rest of the ingredients to an ice filled cocktail, shake well. Pour into martini glass.
Pour the reserved ½ oz espresso to give a layered appearance. If desired, garnish with espresso beans.
