Gunner’s Libation: Espreso Martini


2 oz Grey Goose Vodka

1.5 oz Espresso ( Rock Canyon Coffee)

.5 oz Godiva

.25 oz Kahlua

.5 oz Baileys

3 Coffee Beans

Add all ingredients except the coffee beans in a shaker with ice. Shake until it is very cold. Strain in a martini glass and garnish with 3 coffee beans.

True confessions: I have probably tasted a couple of dozen Espresso Martinis in my day. What can I say? I like a martini, I like espresso, I like the whole idea of a libation that’s also a pick-me-up. But there is one Espresso Martini that recently put most others to shame: The St. Regis Aspen’s Espresso Martini. Granted, it was a pricey indulgence. But really one of these — served up, thick and in a frosty copper martini glass — is all you need. In fact, I dare say it’s the perfect cocktail when you’re looking for that truly special, sinfully sumptious sipper. Enjoyed by the roaring fire in the St. Regis lobby, it’s an experience I can already taste this winter.

WineInk: January Dreams


Perhaps it’s because we are in the abbreviated days of winter and I instinctively know that the sun is shining down-under. But every January I go through a nostalgic period where Australian wine dominates my mind.
