Who doesn’t love coffee? We all like to drink a cup of coffee in the morning to get an energy boost. But have you ever considered having your coffee with a martini? Yes, why not mix your coffee with your martini and get a coffee martini. If you mix it with whiskey, you can get an Irish Coffee, mix with gin and get a Dutch coffee.

RECIPE 1 : COFFEE MARTINI

This is a different take on a regular martini which contains either gin or vodka with dry vermouth. So to make a coffee martini you need the following.

INGREDIENTS

2 oz vodka/ gin

1 oz strong coffee/espresso

1/2 of coffee liqueur ( Kahlua, Illyquore)

METHOD

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and then add the vodka, espresso and coffee liqueur. Give everything a good shake. Next get your cocktail glass and pour out your Coffee Martini.

RECIPE 2 : IRISH COFFEE

This is a typical drink you will see on many menus in Irish restaurants. It’s quite easy to make and requires only a few ingredients.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup of strong coffee

1 teaspoon of sugar (optional for taste)

1 – 2 shots of whiskey

whipped cream (optional)

METHOD

Heat a tall drink glass with hot boiling water. Empty this out and make a regular cup of coffee in the glass. Next add the shots of whiskey. Any brand is fine but I use Paddys whiskey. Next stir all this together. If you want to add some sugar at this stage you so can. Finally top with whisked cream.

RECIPE 3 : DUTCH COFFEE

This is a Dutch recipe with again contains coffee.

INGREDIENTS

1 Cup of coffee

1 shot of gin

whipped cream

1 teaspoon of sugar

METHOD

As with the martini add this to a cocktail shaker which contains crushed ice. Add the coffee, the gin and sugar to this and give it a good shake. Finally pour into a glass and garnish with cream and mint.
