The Vodka Espresso Martini is a modern take on the classic Martini cocktail. It was first created in the late 1990s as an alternative to the dry martini. The combination of coffee and vodka creates a unique flavor that has become a popular choice for many cocktail enthusiasts. The drink is typically made with vodka, espresso, simple syrup, and sometimes a bit of cream for texture. This combination of ingredients produces a smooth and flavorful cocktail that is perfect for any occasion. The espresso adds a strong and robust flavor to the drink, while the vodka provides a smooth, silky texture and kick of alcohol.
