A blend of vodka, coffee liqueur, and Monmouth Coffee.
Smooth and velvety, this espresso martini can induce a dream state at any time of day. The espresso sits at the front of the drink and combines with the vodka to alert every sense and delight while it's doing it.
Pour into a shaker full of ice, and shake hard for about twenty seconds. Strain into a cocktail glass, and you will have a beautifully balanced drink with an attractive and substantial crema.
Garnish with three coffee beans – the con la mosca, which is the traditional Italian way to serve sambuca – the three beans ‘with the fly’ represent health, wealth, and happiness. Whether guaranteed or not, starting with a nice drink makes complete sense.
