A Coffee Martini to Perk You Up - The Cafe Au Lait Martini

http://themartinidiva.com

The Cafe Au Lait Martini is a creamy martini with a little kick of caffeine for some extra punch. It's one of my favorite coffee drinks, second only to my old favorite of an Irish Coffee.

The
CAFE AU LAIT
MARTINI

INGREDIENTS
2 Oz. Vanilla Vodka
1 Oz. Coffee Liqueur
1 Oz. Half & Half

For The Rim: Teaspoon of Instant Coffee, 1/4 Cup of Sugar

Garnish: Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans

Tools: Cocktail Shaker

DIRECTIONS
Dip the rim of the glass into some coffee liqueur and then into the instant coffee and sugar mixture. Chill the glass in the freezer.
Add ingredients to an ice filled cocktail shaker, shake until chilled, strain into the chilled cocktail glass.
Garnish with the chocolate covered espresso beans and serve.

You can even turn this into a spirited frozen coffee confection by using ice cream in place of the half & half and using a blender instead of a martini shaker. It's a wonderful late day treat on those dog days of summer when the mercury is rising and your energy is melting.
