A cocktail guaranteed to shift your paradigms, awaken the senses, stir the blood, and rock your world. Variations on the theme of espresso+martini are commonly found on the drinks card at bars, although purists find the notion of espresso in a martini unforgivably deviant.
- 1 shot strong espresso
- 1 shot Kahlua
- 1 shot Stoli Coffee
- 1 shot Stoli Vanilla
Pour all ingredients into a martini shaker. Shake well, with plenty of ice, and strain into martini glass. Sprinkle a few crushed espresso beans over the top.
The heart-racing stimulation of the espresso and gently opiate mellowing agent of the alcohol form two equally magnetic poles between which the drinker finds him or herself suspended in a state of equanimous bliss. Enjoy!
