    For the sugar syrup

    • 100g golden caster sugar

    For the cocktail

    • ice
    • 100ml vodka



      Originally associated with Russia, Slavonic, Baltic and Scandinavian countries, vodka has become…

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


    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. Turn off the heat and allow the mixture to cool and put 2 Martini glasses in the fridge to chill.

    2. Once the sugar syrup is cold, pour 1 tbsp into a cocktail shaker along with a handful of ice, half the vodka, espresso and coffee liqueur. Shake until the outside of the cocktail shaker feels icy cold then strain into the chilled glasses and garnish each one with coffee beans if you like.
