Here’s How to Make an Espresso Martini According to Starbucks

A person makes an espresso martini.

If you’ve been on the hunt for the perfect holiday cocktail, a famous coffee shop might just have you covered this year.

You can make a Starbucks espresso martini for the holidays with a recipe directly from the coffee purveyor.

In a video uploaded to the brand’s TikTok, a person makes a simple (and delicious-look) espresso martini using Starbucks’ Espresso Roast. To create one yourself, you’ll brew four ounces (or more to save for later) of the Espresso Roast, and once it has cooled, pour it into a shaker of ice.

Then, add four tablespoons of coffee liqueur and eight tablespoons of vodka. Shake, and then strain the cocktail into a martini glass. As a finishing touch, place a candy cane over the rim. You’ve got the perfect festive cocktail.
