You can use cold brew or your favorite espresso. I personally love using Cometeer coffee, which is flash frozen concentrated coffee.

For the liquor you can actually use your preference of vodka or tequila.

Kalulua is a great coffee liqueur that adds a ton of flavor. 

Homemade pumpkin pie spice syrup, recipe is below. You can also use homemade pumpkin pie syrup if preferred.

How To Make

ONE: First make the pumpkin pie syrup and let cool to room temperature.

TWO: Then, add all the ingredients to a shaker with ice and shake vigorously for about 1-2 minutes. Pour into a martini glass and top with three coffee beans. Enjoy!

Tips And Tricks

Shake the mixture vigorously for roughly 1-2 minutes, this is what’s going to create that foam on top.

Be sure to pour all of the liquid out of the shaker using the strainer. Keep shaking until you’ve removed all the liquid, the foam is what comes out last.

Use homemade pumpkin pie syrup for best results.

If you want a sweeter martini, add in .5 ounces more of the pumpkin syrup.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use a different type of liquor instead of vodka?

Yes, tequila will work too!

What kind of coffee can I use? Freshly brewed?

You want to stick to espresso, or strong concentrated coffee like cold brew. This is going to add more of an intense flavor and help balance out the drink. A cup of coffee will taste watered down.

Is this drink really strong?

Yes, martini’s typically are strong when it comes to liquor content. You can adjust the ratio and do only 1 once of vodka instead of 1.5 if preferred.
