What Is an Espresso Martini?

An espresso martini is a caffeinated cocktail that’s really making a comeback on menus these days. The traditional cocktail is made with a shot of espresso, coffee liqueur, vodka and a simple syrup. It’s like a latte, but boozy!

Non-Alcoholic Espresso Martini Mocktails

Obviously, the key ingredients vodka and coffee liqueur contain alcohol. So to make this non-alcoholic, we’re using some incredible substitutes: alcohol-free vodka and coffee liqueur.

Sure, you can make this recipe without the non-alcoholic subs. However, your drink will essentially just taste like a sweetened cold brew. I recommend using non-alcoholic subs for the best flavor.

The coffee liqueur substitute I’m using is significantly less creamy than your typical coffee liqueur, so for a more true-to-original mouth feel and texture, I’d recommend also shaking with a few tablespoons of coconut milk or coconut cream.

Serving Suggestions

Why not kick this drink up a notch by adding some fun garnishes? First, you can make a coffee rim for your glass. To do so, first coat the rim of your martini glass with maple syrup. Then invert the glass into a shallow plate of ground coffee or espresso beans. Flip it over, then fill your glass with espresso martini!

Another upgrade is to add a touch of cinnamon or cardamom to the drink. This is also a great recipe to experiment with flavoured simple syrups. For example, I think peppermint, mocha, or caramel syrups would be delicious twists.
