Holiday Cocktails: The Stimulant

Tonight, I had one (or two or three) rather delicious cocktails. My favorite was called the stimulant and looked quite easy to make, and tasted great…a nice change from boring old cocktails.

The stimulant is an espresso cocktail. Now, I know that combining alcohol and caffeine is a controversial topic, but it could be an interesting drink for your upcoming holiday dinner.

The Stimulant

You’ll need:

  • 1 oz cold espresso
  • 1 1/2 oz vodka
  • 1 1/2 oz coffee liqueur
  • 1 oz white creme de cacao
  • a cocktail shaker
  • a martini glass
  • ice
  • mint sprig and chocolate stick
Combine all the of ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until frothy and strain into the martini glass. Garnish with a mint spring or a chocolate stick (or both!).
