This non-alcoholic, elevated version of an espresso martini still offers all the rich and indulgent flavors of the original, but without the alcohol.
- 2 shots of freshly brewed espresso
- 1 oz vanilla syrup (recipe below)
- 1 oz unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 oz heavy cream or coconut cream
- 1 oz cold brew coffee
- 3 coffee beans for garnish
Brew two shots of espresso and let it cool to room temperature. In a shaker, combine the cooled espresso, vanilla syrup, unsweetened cocoa powder, heavy cream or coconut cream, and cold brew coffee. Fill the shaker with ice and shake until well combined and the shaker becomes frosty. Strain the mixture into a martini glass. Garnish with three coffee beans and serve immediately.
The vanilla syrup and unsweetened cocoa powder add sweetness and depth of flavor, while the heavy cream or coconut cream provides a smooth and creamy texture. The cold brew coffee provides a hint of bitterness, while the espresso provides a strong and bold coffee flavor.
