The Perfect Hazelnut Espresso Martini
If Nutella were a cocktail, it’d be this Espresso Martini recipe! This is a fun, festive, and frothy drink. It’s easy to make and super delicious.
Servings: 1 Person
- 1 Oz. Espresso or Strong Brewed Coffee (*Note 1)
- 1 Oz. High Quality Vodka
- 1 Oz. Kahlua Coffee Liqueur (*Note 2)
- 1 Oz. Frangelico Hazelnut Liqueur (*Note 3)
- 1 Oz. Godiva Chocolate Liqueur (*Note 4)
- 1/2 Oz. Pasteurized Egg White (*Note 5)
Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Add the espresso, vodka, Kahlua, Frangelico, Godiva and egg white, if using. Shake until chilled and frothy-- about 30 seconds.
Strain into a large martini glass, top with coffee beans and enjoy immediately.
Note 1- If you don’t have espresso, you can also use a store-bought coffee concentrate. This is NOT the time to be cheap. Junk quality coffee = junk quality martini.
Note 2: If you don’t have Coffee Liqueur, you can substitute an additional ounce of espresso.
Note 3- If you don’t have Frangelico Hazelnut Liqueur, Amaretto would also be delicious.
Note 4- Want it slightly sweeter? Add the Godiva Chocolate Liqueur or Creme de Cacao or ½ ounce of simple syrup.
Note 5- Using pasteurized egg white is critical. Please do not use a standard egg white as they may contain bacteria that can cause food-borne illnesses. If you do not have pasteurized egg whites, or if you have a weakened immune system, leave the egg whites out. Without the egg white, the drink will still be delicious— just not as foamy.
