The salted caramel espresso martini is the best of every world

Like an evening espresso, but spiked? This martini is just the right amount of sweet, with a smooth foam on top to mimic the crema of hot espresso. Be careful, these will go down fast.

This was my first time using an egg white in a beverage; this is a fairly popular method to enhance the body of a drink and add a foam on top. It seemed a little sketch, so I did a little bit of research first, and it is safe, as long as you use fresh eggs that have been kept refrigerated. If you feel comfortable, give it a try with this recipe – it really makes this drink in my opinion.

Salted Caramel Espresso Martini – 0 carbs

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 oz vodka
  • 2.5 oz fresh espresso, cooled
  • 0.5 oz sugarfree salted caramel syrup
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tsp cream (I used half & half)
  • *Some folks like to include a cacao flavor (often captured by using Kahlua) – if you want this, suggest using unsweetened cocoa powder or a sugarfree chocolate syrup

Directions:

  • Pour espresso shots and chill
  • Add all ingredients, including chilled espresso, in cocktail shaker WITHOUT ice and shake well to activate egg yolk
  • Add ice to shaker and shake again to chill ingredients, then strain into martini glass (*suggest straining twice – once through shaker strainer, on top of a fine mesh strainer to ensure no leftover egg white that didn’t whip completely escapes into your glass)
