The espresso martini is a cold, coffee-flavored cocktail made with vodka, espresso coffee, coffee liqueur, and sugar syrup. It is not a true martini as it contains neither gin nor vermouth, but is one of many drinks that incorporate the term into their names. The original recipe used equal parts Absolut Vanilla and Kahlua, one shot of espresso and organic sugar instead of sugar syrup. The fresh espresso helped melt the sugar which produced a stronger version of the cocktail instead of using sugar syrup.
