Last month I did dry January. It wasn’t because I had to, I just wanted to change up my lifestyle and have a nice reset for this coming year. I have to say it was hard, but having cocktails that feel like you have the real thing helps. This was one of my favorites! Of course you can’t go wrong with an espresso martini anyway!
Espresso Martini Mocktail
(Adapted from Entirely Elizabeth)
4 ounces espresso
2 ounces heavy whipping cream
2 ounces simple syrup
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
cocoa powder; to rim glass
coffee beans; for garnish
Dip the rim of your martini glass into simple syrup and then cocoa powder. Set aside.
Into a cocktail shaker add ice, espresso, heavy cream, simple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt.
Shake vigorously for about a minute or so. Pour into two martini glasses and top with a few coffee beans.
