Ingredients

For the sugar syrup

  • 100g golden caster sugar

For the cocktail

  • ice
  • 100ml vodka
  • 50ml freshly brewed espresso coffee
  • 50ml coffee liqueur (we used Kahlua)
  • 4 coffee beans (optional)

Instructions

  • Step 1: Begin by creating a sugar syrup. Place the granulated sugar in a pot over medium heat and add in 50ml of water. Stir, and bring to a boil.
  • Step 2: Turn off the stove top and allow the mixture to cool to room temperature. Place two martini glasses in the refrigerator to become cold.
  • Step 3: Take 1 tablespoon of the cooled sugar syrup and pour it into a cocktail shaker with some ice, the vodka, espresso and coffee liqueur. Shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker feels frigid.
  • Step 4: Filter the beverage into the cooled glasses. If desired, decorate each glass with coffee beans.
