THE UNION AT HOME: BEN’S ESPRESSO MARTINI

Posted: 26th February 2021Tags:

Although we can’t transport a Union Club staff member to your home ahead of the Chatterboxes Virtual Pub Night – we looked into it, but it just isn’t Covid-safe! – we did ask them what they’d be shaking up for you on Greek Street were you to enquire. After all, we didn’t want to let all that pre-Christmas cocktail training go to waste!

Ben has kindly obliged with a cocktail he’s been drinking a lot of recently, the espresso martini… with a little twist of course.

TOFFEE ESPRESSO MARTINI

Ingredients

  • 40ml Vodka
  • 20ml toffee liquor (you could also use Baileys, or use Kahlua for the classic version)
  • 20ml freshly made espresso
  • Optional : 3 coffee beans – to be fancy

Prepare your coffee and leave to cool.

Add all the liquid ingredients to a shaker, adding the coffee last.

Shake very hard. This will create a nice thick froth, then pour into a glass with a brisk and swift action to allow the frothy foam to land on top.

If using, arrange your coffee beans atop the froth.

ENJOY & REPEAT

THE UNION CLUB IS OPEN AGAIN! In line with the roadmap out of lockdown this is for al fresco dining only, and with restricted hours.For more information see here.
