Espresso Martinis abound everywhere—but tequila and Tia Maria aren’t the conventional choices, so that’s the direction I chose. Before long I’ll show some alternatives, but Patron XO Cafe is a great and different coffee diversion.
1 oz or part Patron Cafe XO Tequila
1 oz or part Tia Maria Liqueur
1 oz or part Freshly Brewed Espresso
Optional Garnish: 3 coffee beans
Optional Garnish: Lemon Rind Strip
Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously for ~10 seconds.
Double strain into a martini glass and garnish to your preference.
