With the rising temps, I love a drink that not only cools me down but also packs a caffeine punch. Enter the Frozen Espresso Martini, the ultimate summer beverage that perfectly marries the invigorating essence of coffee with the coolness of a frozen cocktail.
I’m sipping on this elevated version of everyone’s favorite Espresso Martini as frozen americano ice cubes come together with Kahlua, vodka, simple syrup, and ice. The Frozen Espresso Martini is the perfect fusion of robust coffee notes, bold spirits, and a refreshing icy texture that will delight you from the first sip. Cheers!
This velvety liqueur hails from Mexico and is known for its rich blend of rum, vanilla, and 100% Arabica coffee. Its smooth, deep flavor profile makes it a favorite choice for coffee-based cocktails. The robust notes of coffee and the touch of sweetness in Kahlua complement the intensity of the espresso and lend a creamy texture – perfect for the Frozen Espresso Martini!
Making this Frozen Espresso Martini couldn’t be easier and most of your prep time will be freezing the americano or cold brew. Start by pouring the chilled americano or cold brew into an ice cube mold and let it freeze until solid. In a blender, add in the coffee ice cubes, Kahlua, vodka, simple syrup, and ice. Blend it all up until you achieve a smooth and creamy texture. Divide into two coupe glasses and, if desired, top with a few coffee beans for garnish.
