As to why we celebrate Espresso Martini day on March 15th, we’ve got no idea. But hey, every day needs a reason to celebrate so why not!
The classic Espresso Martini is made using Vodka, Kahlúa and a fresh pulled Espresso. Regular brewed coffee can work in a pinch as long as it’s strong, just know that the foamy head won’t turn out as well as with a real Espresso.
The white stuff is a foam, or crema that comes from shaking. To get the perfect crema, you’ll need to shake the ever living heck out of your drink. Using real Espresso Coffee also helps.
