An old favourite: the Espresso Martini is an iconic drink and classic Kahlúa cocktail. Created in the late 1980s, this coffee cocktail is now making a comeback. Learn how to make the easy-to-prepare classic at home – and impress your guests with this stylish pick-me-up!


  • 4 cl vodka
  • 2 cl Kahlúa
  • 2 cl espresso
  • Ice cubes
  • 3 coffee beans for decoration


  1. Place the ice cubes in a shaker and add the espresso, vodka and Kahlúa.
  2. Shake together the ingredients vigorously for at least 10 seconds until a fine foam has formed.
  3. Pour the drink through a sieve into a Martini glass.

This cocktail contains just three components, so high-quality ingredients are essential. A good coffee liqueur and vodka form the base, while a well-prepared espresso rounds off the flavour. Espresso Monaco from our Dallmayr Röstkunst (art of roasting) range is made with 100% arabica beans and strikes an ideal balance with the Mexican coffee liqueur and the vodka.

Tip: Serve in a Martini glass and decorate with two  coffee beans to transform this espresso cocktail into a stylish evening drink!
