My boss is a very observant woman. She saw how excited everyone was by the espresso martinis during our team-building/cocktail-making night at Eau de Vie last week …
… so she secretly ordered us DIY kits so we could recreate them at home.
How thoughtful is that?
She plonked one on each desk mid-afternoon yesterday, with the canny order that we were to go home and make one and post the results on our internal Facebook page.
I say canny because she probably realised if she didn’t people would put the kit into their cupboards “for a special occasion” or give it to someone as a gift.
To make a Kahlua Espresso Martini you need Kahlua, Absolut Vodka and a cold espresso shot. I’m a little lairy of that much caffeine after 3pm given my history of insomnia, but I figured I should follow orders from the top.
So I brewed a cup of coffee and stuck it in the fridge, unboxed my kit and chose some fancy glasses for the end result.
Then I chucked everything in the cocktail shaker with some ice and gave it a good, long shake.
I didn’t add spray cream like my colleague Kathy because #diet
Here is the finished result …
It was totally delicious. Loved every sip.
What’s your favourite cocktail?
