Martini Monday - Mochatini

Welcome back to Martini Monday!!  Did you try last weeks martini??

This week, I bring you one of my favorites.  I've been making this one for quite some time.  It's the martini version of a Mocha Latte...kind of..

Did you know that Mocha refers to a type of coffee bean and not to chocolate??  Throughout time and history, Mocha has become associated with a type of chocolaty coffee drink.  And so, with that in mind, this martini includes flavors of coffee and chocolate... YUM!!


Here is the breakdown of ingredients (remember, this will make 2 normal size martinis plus a little extra...normal martini glass that holds 4 shots of liquid)

-Double shot of Espresso (if you don't have an espresso machine, I believe there is instant espresso out there)
             -or you can stop on your way home and pick up 2 shots from your local DD or Starbucks
             -don't want the caffeine...use decaf
-Coffee Liqueur - 2 shots  (you can use Khalua if you like, but the cheap stuff works great too)
-Irish Cream Liqueur - 1.5 shots  (Bailey's if you must...)
-Vanilla Vodka - 1 shot  (if you don't have vanilla, regular is fine...)
-Half & Half - splash (I don't like it too creamy...use milk if that's all you have...this ingredient is definitely to  your taste)
-Chocolate Syrup

Add all of the ingredients to your martini shaker filled with ice.  Shake it up!!  Line your martini glasses with chocolate syrup...

Pour your shaken martini into chocolate lined glass and Enjoy!!
This is me enjoying my concoction:)
Not sure what's on tap for next week.  My hubby requested something with Pineapple...so, I will see what I can come up with!!

Hope you all have a fantastic week.
