Ingredients

  • 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)

OPTIONAL:

  • 1 Oz. Godiva Chocolate Liqueur (*Note 4)
  • 1/2 Oz. Pasteurized egg white (*Note 5)

Instructions

  • 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 and enjoy immediately. 

Notes

Note 1: If you dont 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 dont have Coffee Liqueur, you can substitute an additional ounce of espresso.
Note 3: If you dont 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.
