How to prepare an Espresso Martini cocktail recipe?

Espresso Martini ingredients:

° Vodka: 3 cl (1 oz) – The base of our cocktail, offering a smooth canvas for the coffee flavors.
° Espresso: 3 cl (1 oz) – Brings in a deep, rich coffee kick.
° Coffee Liqueur: 2 cl (0.70 oz) – Adds a layer of sweet coffee complexity.
° Garnish: Espresso Powder, Cocoa Powder, or 3 Coffee Beans – Choose one for a beautiful and aromatic finish.

Espresso Martini instructions:

1) Start by brewing a shot of espresso. Let it cool a bit before using.
2) In a shaker, pour in the vodka, cooled espresso, and coffee liqueur. Add ice.
3) Shake everything vigorously until the cocktail is chilled and has a nice froth.
4) Strain the mixture into a chilled martini glass for that sleek, sophisticated look. For the Espresso Martini recipe, we use a cooled martini glass and freshly made espresso coffee combines with cold brew coffee liqueur.

5) Finish off with a garnish of your choice – a dusting of espresso powder, a sprinkle of cocoa powder, or float three coffee beans on top.

The Espresso Martini recipe is the cocktail of the day for January 30 when Franklin D. Roosevelt, the 32nd President of the United States, was born in 1882.

In the annals of American history, Franklin D. Roosevelt stands tall as a leader who navigated the nation through some of its darkest hours, yet it’s the lighter, more personal aspects of his life that endear him to many. Among these is his well-documented love for a good cocktail, with the Martini holding a special place in his heart. FDR wasn’t just the architect of the New Deal; he was also a connoisseur of this classic drink, often seen mixing it himself with a kind of ceremonial delight. His preference leaned towards a gin-based Martini, slightly muddied with a splash of olive brine, giving birth to his own version of the Dirty Martini. This personal twist not only reveals his taste but also a certain joie de vivre, a reminder that even in the midst of guiding a nation, one can still savor the finer things in life.
