Drink of the Day: Espresso Martini

November 23, 2015 | By | Add a Comment

Happy National Espresso Day, everyone!

With the brisk and cold temperatures in the forecast for the next couple days, and on-going in the foreseeable future, this is a great day to get yourself a little kickstart today and warm your insides with a couple shots of espresso.  Not into the hot little shot of condensed coffee?  I have a great alternative for you….

The Espresso Martini is for those who want to get the flavor of a nice hot shot of joe with benefits.  Though the version of this is cold, the liquor will be sure to do the trick of warming up your inners and also give you more of a relaxed feeling after a long Monday.

Enjoy the short week, my friends!  Cheers!
