Try this refreshing twist on a classic cocktail: the frozen espresso martini! This easy recipe blends 4 ingredients into a creamy, frosty puree with rich coffee undertones. It’s the drink of the summer!


  • 1 cup cold brew (or strong coffee, cooled*)
  • 1/4 cup vodka
  • 1/4 cup Kahlua or other coffee liqueur (like Tia Maria)
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar**
  • 3 cups ice cubes
  • Coffee beans, for garnish


  1. Place all ingredients in the blender and blend until combined.
  2. Pour into glasses and garnish with coffee beans. 


*We used purchased bottled vanilla cold brew. You can also use homemade cold brew coffee, or make double-strength coffee using your favorite method.

**If desired, you can also use 2 1/2 tablespoons simple syrup, maple syrup, or agave syrup as a natural sweetener.

Make ahead notes: It’s best to blend right before serving to have the correct slushy texture. If desired, you can mix up the liquids and refrigerate, then blend with ice right before serving. You can also blend and freeze for up to 1 hour, then stir with a fork before serving.
