Ingredients

For the sugar syrup

For the cocktail

  • ice
  • 100ml vodka
  • 50ml freshly brewed espresso coffee
  • 50ml coffee liqueur (we used Kahlua)
  • 4 coffee beans (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Start by making the sugar syrup. Put the caster sugar in a small pan over a medium heat and pour in 50ml water. Stir, and bring to the boil.

  • STEP 2

    Turn off the heat and allow the mixture to cool. Put 2 martini glasses in the fridge to chill.

  • STEP 3

    Once the sugar syrup is cold, pour 1 tbsp into a cocktail shaker along with a handful of ice, the vodka, espresso and coffee liqueur. Shake until the outside of the cocktail shaker feels icy cold.

  • STEP 4

    Strain into the chilled glasses. Garnish each one with coffee beans if you like.
