Most excellent. I made one as the recipe stated, and with the second, I added half an ounce of irish creme. Smooth, but with a bite. I could see myself becoming friendly with these quite often. ;)

This is a white russian (coffee liqueur = kahlua). I've made a few espresso martinis in my day, though, and can say that the best way is: shot of espresso, vanilla vodka, and kahlua (or whatever sweetened coffe-ish liqueur you prefer). If you like yours creamy, add Baileys (although I tried it once with Amarula, and my oh my it was tasty! So, really, a creamy liqueur of your preference). ... and like with many martinis... shake that thing till you can't shake any more - a frothy beverage is a good one.

I don't think I would like this as something to have before dinner because it was a bit sweet and heavy. I could easily see this as an accompaniment to a light dessert, like a chocolate mousse, or on its own. Odd that this recipe states it's two servings - I made this for Naples and I and got two mini martinis out of it. While it was perfect for the two of us, be advised that it didn't amount to much more than a shot glass per serving.

Um...where is the espresso? Should have espresso to be called an Espresso Martini. But I tried it anyway and it was good.

Definitely a "White Russian", but prettier in a martini glass....classier!

A White Russian... in a martini glass. Add a dash of espresso powder to the top...still good though.
