“Wake me up and fuck me up” - Kate Moss, ordering an Espresso Martini at New York Fashion Week in the 90s, according to Urban Lore.
I think we all could use a little waking up and fucking up, so let’s have at her, shall we?
2oz Vodka (I use Vestel, Dillons or, Absolute Vanilla)
½ oz Kahlua
1oz freshly brewed espresso (left to chill)
½ oz brown sugar syrup
OPTIONAL ½ oz chickpea water / aquafaba (this will elevate the foam, otherwise one has to rely on a thin espresso foam)
3 coffee beans
Shake vigorously with ice until your cocktail shaker is VERY cold. Strain into a chilled coupe and garnish with three coffee beans; one for health, one for wealth, and one for happiness.
