Perk up with this creamy Coffee Martini! It’s the ideal after dinner drink: coffee, Kahlua and Irish cream with a crunchy coffee bean rim.


  • 2 ounces* coffee, slightly cooled (use decaf if desired)
  • 1 ounces vodka
  • 1/2 ounce Kahlua (or other coffee liqueur like Tia Maria or Sheridan’s)
  • 1/2 ounce Irish cream (Bailey’s or other)
  • For the rim: equal parts finely ground coffee beans and granulated sugar, for the garnish


  1. Make the coffee, using your favorite method (pour over, Aeropress or other).
  2. Wet the rim of the cocktail glass. Place the finely ground coffee beans and sugar on a plate, and tilt the outside rim of the glass into the mixture so that it coats the outer rim. 
  3. Place the coffee, vodka, Kahlua, and Irish cream in a cocktail shaker. Add 2 handfuls ice and shake until cold. Strain into the prepared cocktail glass. 


*For converting to tablespoons: 2 ounces = 4 tablespoons or 1/4 cup.
