Espresso Martini

The Espresso Martini is the perfect marriage of caffeine and alcohol. I imagine that this drink was originally conceived at either a coffee bar or a martini bar. People love coffee and they also love martinis, so it was logical to combine them. However it came to be, it's an excellent cocktail that should not be missed.

There are many variations of this martini but the core ingredients are always vodka (sometimes flavored) and espresso (sometimes coffee).

Recipe #1 - Espressotini
2 oz Espresso
2 1/2 oz Vanilla Vodka
1 oz Godiva Cappuccino Liqueur or Kahlua

Let a Double Espresso cool to room temperature
Add all ingredients to cocktail shaker filled with ice
Line the rim of a martini glass with cinnamon and cocoa powder
Shake well and pour into the martini glass
Add 1 or 3 coffee beans as garnish
