This Toasted Almond Espresso Martini is a fantastic blend of coffee, almond, and a hint of sweetness.


  • 1 1/2 oz Espresso or strong brewed coffee, cooled
  • 1 oz Amaretto for almond liqueur
  • 1 oz Vodka
  • 1/2 oz Coffee liqueur you can use Kahlúa for coffee liqueur
  • 1/2 oz Cream or milk
  • Toasted almonds for garnish
  • Coffee beans optional, for garnish


  • Chill the Martini Glass:
  • Start by placing your martini glass in the freezer to chill. This will help keep your drink cold and add a nice touch to its presentation.
  • Toast the Almonds:
  • If you haven’t already, lightly toast some almonds in a pan or oven. Be careful not to burn them.
  • Once cooled, finely chop a small amount to use as garnish.
  • Mix the Drink:
  • In a shaker, combine the espresso (or coffee), Amaretto, vodka, cream and coffee liqueur.
  • Fill the shaker with ice, ensuring there’s enough to chill the mixture without diluting it too much.
  • Shake Well:
  • Secure the lid on the shaker and shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds. The goal is to cool the mixture while also creating a slight froth from the espresso.
  • Prepare the Garnish:
  • Take the chilled martini glass and rim it with the toasted almonds. You can do this by moistening the rim with a little espresso or liqueur, then dipping it into the chopped almonds.
  • Serve:
  • Strain the shaken mixture into the prepared martini glass. The drink should be smooth with a frothy top.
  • Garnish:
  • Add a few coffee beans on top for an extra coffee kick and an elegant look.
  • Enjoy your drink!
