There are many attempts at an Espresso Martini out there (see a few below), but it was one that I had after dinner at the Bacchus Restaurant (now closed) in St. Croix, Virgin Islands that was the best by far. I think it was the combination of Cruzan's Vanilla Rum and strong, fresh brewed coffee that set this one apart as spectacular.

When you're making this, be sure to allow your coffee to chill while also making sure it is fresh - if the coffee's hot the ice in the shaker will melt almost instantly. A few minutes in the refrigerator or freezer chills hot coffee nicely.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 1 Cocktail



  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into a well-chilled cocktail glass.
