Ingredients And Substitutions

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Frozen Espresso Martini. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.

Instead of freezing an obscene amount of espresso, you can use a highly concentration cold brew like I did for this recipe. The taste is slightly different, but still delicious, otherwise frozen espresso will work great too. I like cometeer coffee!

This recipe works with vodka or tequila, so it’s really your preference.

Use a coffee liqueur like Kalula.

Option to add in a sweetener such as agave, honey or maple syrup. I’m sure brown sugar would taste amazing too!

Tips And Tricks

Use frozen highly concentrated coffee cubes such as cold brew, or frozen espresso cubes. Using regular brewed coffee will still work, but won’t be nearly as strong as a coffee taste.

In this recipe I used giant frozen ice cubes, which is totally fine if you have a high speed blender such as a blendtec. Otherwise, if using something like a Beast Health Blender or Nutribullet, then I recommend using small coffee cubes so it’s easier to blend.

Pour frozen espresso martini in a chilled glass so it stays cooler, longer.

If your mixture is too watery, add in a handful of ice and blend once more.

How To Serve And Store

Serve this Frozen Espresso Martini blended and in a chilled glass. Top with three coffee beans!

Since this is a frozen drink, leftovers will melt and be more like an iced coffee so I recommend making the day of.

Taste And Texture

This frozen espresso martini has a strong coffee taste with a slight after taste of the alcohol. It tastes like a strong iced coffee.

The texture is similar to a slushy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use frozen coffee instead of cold brew?

You can, but your martini won’t be as strong. It will taste more like a spiked coffee instead.

What type of blender is best for this recipe?

A high speed blender such as a blendtec is best if using large frozen coffee cubes. Otherwise, if using something like a Beast Health Blender or Nutribullet, then I recommend using small coffee cubes so it’s easier to blend.

What coffee do you recommend?

A highly concentrated cold brew, freshly brewed espresso that is then frozen, or Cometeer coffee which is flash frozen and my favorite!
