An Espresso Martini is my favorite drink around the holidays, and you'll LOVE this festive holiday version. This Festive Holiday Espresso Martini has a candy cane rim, is the perfect post-dinner pick-me-up cocktail, and is my favorite Christmas Eve tradition.
- Candy canes
- Chocolate syrup
- 1 oz Kahlua
- 3 oz vodka (my favorite is Titos)
- 1/2 oz simple syrup
- 1.5 oz *hot* espresso
- Splash of milk or cream
- Add ice to a cocktail shaker. Add Kahlua, simple syrup, vodka and *hot* espresso. Shake the cocktail shaker until all ingredients are cold.
- Add chocolate syrup to a plate. On a separate plate, crush the candy canes. Dip the rim of the glass into the chocolate syrup, then into the crushed candy canes so that they will stick to the rim.
- Pour the contents, without the ice, into the cocktail glass. Enjoy!
