  • 2 oz freshly brewed espresso (chilled)
  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 oz coffee liqueur
  • 1/2 oz vanilla-flavored liqueur
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • Ice cubes
  • Coffee beans for garnish


  • Espresso Maker (If you don’t have an espresso machine a French Press will work well, or brew a strong pour over coffee)
  • Cocktail Shaker w/ strainer (A jar with a lid will work, too! Use a small kitchen strainer)
  • Martini Glass, chilled (optional. Tastes just as good in any other glass!)


  1. Brew and Chill Espresso: Start by brewing a strong shot of espresso and allowing it to chill. You can speed up the cooling process by placing it in the refrigerator or using an espresso chiller.
  2. Prepare Glassware: Choose a martini glass for that classic presentation. Chill the glass by placing it in the freezer for a few minutes before serving.
  3. Fill Shaker with Ice: Grab a cocktail shaker and fill it with a generous amount of ice cubes. This will ensure that your cocktail is perfectly chilled when served.
  4. Combine Ingredients: Pour the chilled espresso into the shaker, followed by vodka, coffee liqueur, vanilla-flavored liqueur, and simple syrup. This combination creates a harmonious blend of coffee, spirits, and sweetness.
  5. Shake It Up: Secure the lid on the shaker and shake the ingredients vigorously for about 15-20 seconds. This not only blends the flavors but also imparts a frothy texture to the cocktail.
  6. Strain into Glass: Remove the lid from the shaker and strain the mixture into the chilled martini glass. The straining process helps to eliminate ice chips and ensures a smooth, velvety consistency.
  7. Garnish with Coffee Beans: To add a touch of elegance and aroma, garnish the cocktail with a few coffee beans on top. This not only enhances the visual appeal but also complements the coffee-infused experience.
  8. Serve and Sip: Your Espresso Bliss Martini is now ready to be enjoyed. Sip slowly and savor the layers of coffee goodness with every delightful taste.

Elevate your coffee ritual with the Espresso Bliss Martini – a sophisticated blend of coffee, spirits, and sweetness. Whether you’re hosting a dinner party or enjoying a quiet evening, this cocktail is a delightful way to combine your love for coffee with a touch of elegance. Cheers to the perfect union of bold flavors and refined sipping!
