This Chocolate Espresso Martini will satisfy all your major cravings all in one glass. Freshly brewed espresso, vodka, Kahlua and a bit of chocolate syrup are pure liquid, ecstasy. A cocoa powder rimmed glass with chocolate shavings top off this chocolate lover’s paradise.
This drink is SO me with a few of my favorite things…chocolate, espresso and vodka! A total cocktail dream situation going on here. This martini is up there with my favorite, Salted Caramel Chocolate Martini. If you are feeling like chocolate and need a pick me up, just had a bit of espresso in there for the win.
You will never catch me drinking plain coffee, but a good latte is a daily occurrence around here. I ended up having to buy a latte maker. I’ve used it so much, that the pitcher has been replaced 3 times now. The beauty of the machine, is that it also brews espresso to make this tasty martini and Tiramisu Pancakes (anything tiramisu is going in my mouth).
My daughter’s 6th birthday is this Friday and I’ve officially over-committed myself once again. I went out and purchased a bunch of cake decorating supplies that I probably won’t even have time to touch before the party. I will probably be up until 2 AM on Friday trying to make a troll cake with rainbow rosettes and layers of chocolate cake. Needless to say, this story will probably end with me getting on a grocery store’s website to frantically place a cake order the day before. I will let you all know how this story turns out.
To add to my conundrum, Halloween is 4 days after my daughter’s birthday. My attempts to save money on Halloween costumes by ordering them online have also backfired. My daughter’s witch costume drags the floor like a bride about to trip walking down the aisle. Yikes…the scissors will have be used for some creative hem-work. Things will go much smoother once I have my Candy Corn and Melted Witch Martinis in hand. Thank God I took vacation days next week!
Cheers to more cocktails!
