First step: buy or, even better, make a nice cup of espresso at home. Once you have that…. drink it! Because if you are like me you will not be able to resist a nice shot of espresso when it comes time to make the drink.
Jokes a side, begin by pouring into the mixing glass vanilla vodka, Irish Cream, Kahlua, a shot of espresso and whipped cream. Shake it well and strain it into a chilled chocolate rimmed and chocolate drizzled martini glass or cognac balloon.
This drink is very appropriate for long and cold winter nights, the color is very inviting , the aroma is of fresh cream with light fragrance of vanilla. The pleasure found in sipping from this drink comes from a delicate and balanced combination of strong coffee flavors and a smooth yet rich interaction between the liquor and the cream.
