There's something about Christmas that screams cocktails to me. It must be all the parties and nights out. Of course, you don't have to limit your cocktail consumption to Christmas and this cocktail is perfect for any time of the year. I really enjoy this espresso martini with baileys in the evenings at home and it's a wonderful one for entertaining too because you can make it in a bigger batch and you don't need to worry about cocktail shakers and the like! It has plenty of alcoholic punch though so be warned - don't drink a whole jug of the stuff!
I'm a huge coffee drinker and I love a proper coffee. I either use good quality filter coffee in a cafetière or for convenience I tend to use my *Nespresso machine. Combined with the milk in this recipe, this gives a lovely smooth drink. For me a cocktail has to taste nice, and not too strongly of alcohol and this ticks those boxes. It's lovely and warming for those winter nights too.
This recipe makes 4 cocktails but of course you can just adjust the measurements to make as many as you like. If it was just me I'd make half to enjoy in the evening but I might make double for a party. Just adjust the quantities as you see fit.
Espresso Martini With Baileys
- 100 ml whole milk
- 5 tablespoon baileys
- 125 ml strong coffee cooled
- 4 tablespoon vodka
- 4 tablespoon Kahlúa
- Amaretti biscuits to serve
Make some strong coffee and leave it to cool. Add the vodka and Kahlua.
Separately whisk up the milk and baileys together.
Pop some ice cubes into 4 nice glasses and divide the coffee liqueur mixture between them, topping up with the Baileys milk mixture. spooning some of the froth on the top at the end.
I think I'll be enjoying mine this year with my Christmas pudding in the evening in front of a good Christmas film! I'm really looking forward to enjoying some downtime this Christmas as life has been so busy lately. What is better than enjoying a lovely drink and snack, cuddled with your loved ones in front of the TV with the Christmas tree in the background! I wish I could transport myself in time now!
