50 ml Mocha Mudslide Northern Cream
30 ml Espresso (freshly brewed and cooled)
25 ml Vodka
Chocolate Shavings for garnish
Chill Your Martini Glass: Begin by chilling a martini glass, either by placing it in the freezer or filling it with ice water for a few minutes.
Combine Ingredients: In a shaker, add 50 ml of Mocha Mudslide Northern Cream, 30 ml of cooled espresso, and 25 ml of vodka. The combination of coffee and chocolate from the cream with the clean, crisp vodka creates a harmonious blend.
Shake with Ice: Fill the shaker with ice and shake vigorously. This not only chills the drink but also gives it a slightly frothy texture, perfect for a martini.
Strain: Empty the martini glass of ice water if used for chilling. Strain the cocktail into the glass, achieving a smooth, velvety consistency.
Garnish: Finish by garnishing with chocolate shavings. This not only adds an extra hint of chocolate but also makes for an elegant presentation.
And that's your Mocha Espresso Martini, a blend of coffee, chocolate, and vodka that creates a luxurious drinking experience. This cocktail is not just about the taste; it’s also about the presentation, with the chocolate shavings adding a touch of elegance. Whether you're unwinding after a long day or celebrating a special occasion, this martini is sure to impress.
Here's to a drink that's as indulgent as it is elegant, a true toast to sophistication. Cheers!
