The Espresso Martini is a variant of a classic vodka drink with a strong emphasis on caffeine. As the cocktail contains a shot of espresso, this also adds caffeine content to the drink which is sure to liven you up. The drink also features Kahlúa, a blend of coffee liqueur and rum. The Espresso Martini is served in a cocktail glass and presented with a garnish of coffee beans on top.
