Discover the perfect blend of coffee and cream with the Baileys Espresso Martini recipe. A must-try for coffee and cocktail enthusiasts.


  • 2 oz Baileys Irish Cream
  • 1/4 oz vodka optional for an extra kick
  • 1 oz brewed espresso cooled
  • Coffee beans for garnish


  • Prepare the Espresso:
  • Brew a strong espresso and allow it to cool. You’ll want it cold to prevent melting the ice too quickly.
  • Combine Ingredients:
  • In a shaker, combine the cooled espresso, Baileys Irish Cream, and vodka if you’re including it.
  • Add a handful of ice cubes.
  • Shake:
  • Secure the lid on the shaker and shake vigorously for about 15 seconds. This not only chills the drink but also introduces air, giving the martini a nice froth.
  • Strain and Serve:
  • Strain the mixture into a chilled martini glass. The aim is to have a nice foam on top.
  • Garnish:
  • For a classic finishing touch, float three coffee beans on the foam. This garnish is not just decorative; in Italian culture, it symbolizes health, wealth, and happiness.
  • Enjoy:
  • Serve immediately and enjoy the luxurious blend of coffee and creamy Baileys.
