Time to Ring in the New Year!


New Year's Eve is here people and this little cocktail will not let you be nodding off as the New Year approaches!

Champagne may be the drink of choice for many on New Year's Eve, but save the bubbly for another time and try this unique drink...

A Midnight Martini is a dark, easy to make martini with strong coffee flavor ~ chilling the espresso before making ~ is an important element to the drink.

Although, the martini is sweet enough on its own, the simple syrup adds a nice little froth to it. 

It's the perfect cocktail to keep you going into the wee hours!







Midnight Martini Cocktail

Ingredients:

2 ounces Grey Goose vodka
1 ounce espresso or strong coffee (cold)
1 ounce Kahlúa
Healthy splash of simple syrup
Orange twist for garnish

Method:

Pour ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
Shake it hard for 10-15 seconds.
Strain into a martini glass.
Garnish with orange twist.

ENJOY!








HAVE A GREAT
HAPPY NEW YEAR
AND
BE SAFE!
