Espresso Martini – Absolut Summer Cocktail of the Week
On a hot day, I love sipping on a giant iced coffee to cool me down.
This week's cocktail combines some of my favorite ingredients to make one perfect drink.
Before we get started on the cocktail, don't forget that Absolut has your chance to win tickets to see Lady Gaga in Atlantic City on June 28th!
This is your last week to enter to win! Qualifiers will join us on June 24th at Waters Edge in Bayville where THREE lucky winners will score a pair of tickets! You must be 21, but entering is simple: Just text 'GAGA' to 89000 now! (Standard texting/data rates apply.)
Now, on to the good stuff.
- 1.5 oz. Absolut vodka
- .75 oz. coffee liqueur (like Kahlua)
- .75 cold espresso (Yes, there is a difference between coffee and espresso.)
- .75 Tbls. simple syrup
Shake all ingredients over ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
There are plenty of ways to switch this up to suit your tastes:
Use more or less simple syrup depending on how sweet you want the drink.
Use a flavored vodka like Absolut Vanilla or Absolut Citron.
Add a bit of cream to make it...creamier.
