All you need for this easy vodka martini is 3 ingredients!

  • Vodka - Use your favorite vodka. We usually try and buy local to support our local distillers.
  • Espresso - We don't have an espresso maker so to keep it super easy, I usually use a Keurig cup and make the smallest amount you can. You can also just brew a really strong coffee.
  • Coffee Liqueur - I used my Homemade Coffee Liqueur, which is so easy to make and so delicious. However, you can definitely use Kahlua or your favorite brand of coffee liqueur.

We remembered our bottle of Whisper Creek Tennessee Sipping Cream Whiskey! We are planning a Tennessee Whiskey Trail vacation, and wanted to try a few of our options before we hit the road. What goes better in coffee drinks than a little cream??

It was the perfect optional addition! It turns your martini into more of a coffee and cream martini. I love the Tennessee Sipping Cream and have lots of co*cktail ideas running through my head!


You're going to love how easy this coffee co*cktail is!

  • Add 2 ounces vodka to a co*cktail shaker.
  • Add 1 ounce of coffee liqueur to the shaker.
  • Add 1 ounce of espresso to the shaker.
  • Fill the shaker about ½ to ¾ full of ice and shake for 15-30 seconds. You shake to chill and properly dilute the co*cktail. The longer you shake the more diluted the co*cktail will become.
  • Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a few coffee beans.

This co*cktail is so good. It's definitely one of the easiest I've made and definitely one of the most delicious ones! Everyone loves this co*cktail! It's great for serving at the end of dinner party or co*cktail party.

      My son is graduating Fullerton University in May.
      He made his own cold coffee recently (after buying a ton over the years!) (hey whatever gets you thru school eh?) (4.0 honor society in computer engineering I might add! 😉 )
      This martini would be a fun addition to the party we are throwing him, thanks,
      also I bought your bag on E-bay (it was also from TjMaxx).
      love your blog just found it recently.
