Espresso Martini

Espresso Martini - A delicious cocktail made with chilled espresso, vodka, kahlua and Irish cream.

Our favorite local sushi restaurant has a delicious Espresso Martini on their cocktail menu – and more often than not – when my husband Jack and I go out for date night together, one of us will order it.

We’ve watched the bartender make it a few times – taking mental notes about how the cocktail is made. With Valentine’s Day coming up, and a special romantic dinner planned at home, this is our attempt to recreate that delicious Espresso Martini at home!

Espresso Martini - A delicious cocktail made with chilled espresso, vodka, kahlua and Irish cream.

It starts with some strong brewed and chilled espresso that gets mixed with Bailey’s Irish Cream, Kahlua and vodka – plus half and half (or whole milk) to smooth things out.

In our ingredients list below, you will notice that we call for using Absolut Oak Vodka which is their dark vodka. Regular vodka can be used instead, but their new “oak” vodka is delicious!  (Note: This is not a sponsored post – just wanted to share our opinion!)

These Espresso Martinis pack a bit of a punch – both from caffeine and alcohol – so please keep that in mind as you enjoy this cocktail.

*Please drink responsibly. Thank you.*

  1. This is such a great and creative idea. It has never occurred to me to mix espresso and vodka before.

    Is this safe?? Lol… sorry if that is a dumb question. I just feel like between the mix of the upper and the downer, I don’t know if I should be drinking this first thing in the morning, or as an after dinner treat. I think I’ll probably try it first with decaf beans in my espresso machine, so that I dont run the risk of being up all night 🙂

    I LOVE your blog. I just subscribed and I am looking forward to hearing from you!

    All the best,
