The Recipe How-To
Before we can make our Coffee Dessert Martini, we must make sure that we have all the necessary ingredients on hand. In this recipe, you will need:
- 1 oz Chambord raspberry liquor
- 1 oz Creme de Cacao
- 1 oz espresso
- 2 oz vodka
- 1 oz coffee liqueur
- 1/2 oz simple syrup
Preparing the Cocktail Shaker
Once we have all the ingredients ready, it’s time to prepare the cocktail shaker. Fill the shaker with ice cubes and shake it well to chill the shaker. Our goal here is to create a perfect blend of flavors while keeping our drink refreshingly cold.
Mixing the Ingredients
After chilling our cocktail shaker, add all the ingredients (except fresh raspberries) into the shaker. Shake the cocktail shaker vigorously for few minutes so that every ingredient gets mixed perfectly. Remember not to overdo it with shaking as there should be no dilution of flavors.
After shaking well, strain our freshly-made coffee martini into a chilled martini glass. You can now add garnishes such as fresh raspberries or sprinkle some cocoa powder on top – it adds flavor and makes our martini look lovely. Using a fresh raspberry and chocolate liqueur as garnish also gives you an added treat at the bottom of your martini glass after finishing your drink.
Enjoying Your Coffee Dessert Martini
Congratulations! You’ve just made your own Coffee Dessert Martini. Coffee cocktails never go out of style, and this classic cocktail definitely fits any occasion. You can also experiment with different variations of espresso and vodka to create unique martinis that complement any mood or dessert.
Substitutions and Variations
When it comes to making a coffee dessert martini recipe, there are many variations that you can try to customize the drink according to your taste. Here are some substitutions and variations that you can experiment with:
– Use cold brew instead of espresso: For a richer flavor, substitute the espresso in the recipe with cold brew. Cold brew is made by steeping coffee grounds in cold water for hours, resulting in a smoother and less acidic taste.
– Swap out the liqueurs: The recipe calls for Chambord raspberry liquor, Creme de Cacao, and coffee liqueur, but you can try different types of liqueurs to create new flavor combinations. For example, swap the raspberry liquor for Irish cream or the chocolate liqueur for amaretto.
– Vary the vodka: Vodka is an essential ingredient in this recipe, but you can use different types of vodka to add complexity to the drink. Try using flavored vodka like vanilla or caramel or experiment with herb-infused vodkas.
– Add fruit: To give your coffee dessert martini a fresh twist, consider adding fresh raspberries or other seasonal fruits. Muddle them at the bottom of your shaker before adding your other ingredients for extra flavor.
– Add ice cream: For an indulgent version of this cocktail, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to the shaker. This will give the cocktail a creamier texture and make it perfect as an after-dinner dessert drink.
Overall, don’t be afraid to get creative with this recipe and try something new! With so many possible variations and substitutions available, the possibilities are limited only by your imagination. Just remember to keep your ingredients balanced so that you don’t overpower any of the flavors.
Serving and Pairing
When it comes to serving this coffee dessert martini, it’s all about the presentation. You’ll want to choose a stylish cocktail glass to show off the rich and decadent ingredients. A classic martini glass or a stemless option both work great, but feel free to get creative.

If you want to make this drink ahead of time, you’ll need to follow the steps in the recipe as written. Then, transfer the drink to a clean bottle with an airtight lid and store it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. When you’re ready to serve it, give the bottle a quick shake and pour it into glasses over ice.
Storing this drink is easy – you can simply place any leftovers back into the bottle with an airtight lid and in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. However, it’s best to use fresh ingredients whenever possible for optimal flavor.
Reheating this drink is not recommended as heat can alter the taste of the ingredients. If you must reheat it, set up a double boiler by filling a pot halfway with water and placing it on medium heat on your stove. Place the bottle with your coffee martini mix inside another pot that fits over the first one without touching the water. Heat until warmed through but avoid overheating or boiling.
Now that you know how easy it is to store your coffee martini mix, there’s no reason not to enjoy this yummy drink whenever you crave it!
