Hazelnut & Vanilla Espresso Martini

Presenting you with a decadent twist on the classic espresso martini cocktail. This espresso martini uses a vanilla infused vodka as well as Frangelico, a hazelnut liqueur, to take the humble espresso martini to the next level. Also in addition to the usual garnishing of coffee beans on top, I’ve gone ahead and dipped the rim of the glass in some chocolate syrup and crushed hazelnuts for another level of decadence.

The vibe
Drink this after dinner in place of dessert or anytime really if you’re a coffee lover!
