The Espresso Martini

Espresso Martini, Baileys Irish Cream Martini

This cocktail is absolutely delicious and very special. It’s made with Bailey’s Irish Cream, Kahlua, Frangelico and double espresso vodka.  I don’t know what it is about it but it’s hard to resist after dinner.

Did I say dinner? Don’t feel you have to limit yourself. I’ve been known to split one with a friend after lunch. The thing is, we then order another one to split. I know the math. What can I say?

It’s goes down like silk then gives you a kick in the pants with the double espresso vodka. I love it! I think you will too.

Use it for good…
