Giveaway and How to Make an Espresso Martini with Taste Cocktails

I love espresso martinis, there’s something so delicious about them and I invariably order one at some point in the night when I’m out for cocktails. But until recently I had no idea how to make an espresso martini at home, that is until Taste Cocktails sent me one of their great cocktail making kits to try!

The best bit? You can too as I’m giving away one of their kits to one lucky reader!

The kits come with everything you need to make the perfect cocktails – including simple instructions to make your tipple of choice. The only thing I had to make myself for these was the espresso!

Anything with Kahlua in it is always my friend…

I loved that the instructions give you three different choices; the classic espresso martini, the cuppa joe (if you’re a hazelnut fan) and the toasted almond.

Toby, the man behind Taste Cocktails who can teach you how to make espresso martinis at home, has made these kits so personal which I love. The recipe card tells you where the cocktails came from and even tells you what type of glass to serve your creations in!

So after a couple of exams this week, David, Roisin and I decided a little celebration was in order and so we cracked out David’s cocktail shaker and whipped up some cocktails at home.

It really was as simple as this…

Freshly brew an espresso and leave to cool a little. Pour the alcohol from your kit into the cocktail glass…

Make sure there is ice in your shaker…

Give it a good ol’ shake and pour the coffee into the shaker, too.

Strain the delicious coffee-vodka-delight into your pre-chilled martini glasses
