Alright, I know everybody is way tired of anything -tini already, but this is a smashing recipe for an espresso martini that I reverse-engineered from a fabulous cocktail at Chef Eric Tucker's Millenium restaurant, where they once served a spectacular tofu-ganache espresso martini.
I don't know shit about tofu, but I know a good espresso cocktail when I have it, and I think that was one of the best. A good coffee cocktail is the ultimate pick me up / lay me down mix, and a great after dinner dessert substitute.
Here is my favorite espresso concoction:
2 oz. vodka
2 oz. espresso
1 oz. coffee liqueur (kahlua or copa d'oro is fine)
1/2 oz. triple sec
Shake thoroughly and top with a twist of lemon
