This is the ultimate festive twist on the classic and popular caffeinated cocktail, the Espresso Martini. Create the perfect Crema and replace the traditional three espresso beans with a festive snowflake and sparkles to wow your guests with a memorable after dinner treat.
25 ml Drambuie liqueur
25 ml Whisky (e.g. Monkey Shoulder)
Lots of ice
5ml Vanilla syrup (optional)
White edible cake glitter
White sugar crystal rocks, crushed
Liquid glucose, honey or golden syrup
How To Make It:
Mix a little of the edible cake glitter with the crushed sugar crystal rocks and place on a small plate.
Use your finger or a brush to carefully coat the rim of the glass with the liquid glucose or egg white, then dip into the glittery sugar medley.
For the perfect Crema, pour all ingredients without ice, into a cocktail shaker or equivalent (a jam jar will do), and shake vigorously, then add lots of ice to the shaker, and shake again. This will create the perfect foam before pouring into a chilled martini glass.
For the final flourish, set a snowflake stencil over the top of the glass and gently dust over the cocoa powder using a small fine tea strainer or sieve.
