This cocktail is the perfect combination of rich, strong espresso and smooth vodka, with a hint of sweetness from coffee liqueur. It's perfect as an after-dinner drink or as a pick-me-up any time of day.
To make an Espresso Martini with an Aeropress, you'll need the following ingredients:
- 1 shot of Aeropress coffee (about 60 ml)
- 44ml of vodka
- 25 ml coffee liqueur (such as Kahlua or Tia Maria)
- Ice cubes
- 3 coffee beans (for garnish)
- Start by brewing a shot of coffee using your Aeropress. Grind 15 grams of coffee beans to a fine consistency, and then place them into the Aeropress chamber. Heat up water to about 93°C and pour it over the coffee. Stir for about 10 seconds, then plunge the Aeropress for about 30 seconds to extract the coffee.
- Let the coffee cool down to room temperature.
- Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
- Add the vodka, coffee liqueur, and cooled Aeropress coffee to the shaker.
- Shake vigorously for about 10-15 seconds to combine all the ingredients and create a frothy layer on top of the cocktail.
- Strain the mixture into a chilled martini glass.
- Garnish with 3 coffee beans on top of the frothy layer.
- Serve and enjoy!
