Method – Martini

  1. Place your 2 Martini glasses in the fridge to chill.
  2. Starting with your simple syrup is the first step in creating this fantastic martini. Simple syrup is a staple in any cocktail journey. Combine castor sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil by stirring constantly.
  3. Make your espresso shot with our Limited Edition Aluminium Range Nespresso Compatible Espresso Pod. Depending on your coffee preference, you may enjoy this martini in your own way. Place our Nespresso-compatible capsule in your machine and brew 50ml (espresso shot).
  4. Once your simple syrup has cooled down, add a tablespoon to a cocktail shaker. Fill it 3 quarters of the way with ice. Now add your vodka, coffee liqueur and your caffeluxe espresso. Shake the mixture until it feels extremely cold to the touch.
  5. Time to strain your martini into the glass that you chilled. You can garnish with coffee beans or any topping of your choice.
