Espresso Martini Recipe



There is quite a gap every day between coffee hour and cocktail time – that's the space where this recipe shines, although there is a strong argument to make for its place at brunch or as an after-dinner treat. Come to think of it, any time when you want a little kick of caffeine and the gorgeous flavor of Irish cream, this cocktail is perfect.
