It’s no secret that Australians are fussy about coffee. Harris Coffee has spent around 130 years proudly roasting and blending their beans for the discerning Aussie tastebud. And what a way to end a long, working week than with a Harris vanilla espresso martini. It’s the perfect cocktail to ease you into cooler weather, with a lovely vanilla twist!
Time 10 minutes
30ml of Harris Coffee Vanilla Espresso mix (mix together freshly ground and brewed Harris Espresso coffee and fresh vanilla beans and leave for a few minutes so the vanilla can infuse into the rich Harris coffee)
45ml good quality Jamaican or Caribbean rum
15ml Kahlua coffee liqueur
5ml egg white (1 part egg white to 2 parts water)
5ml vanilla sugar syrup
- Pour ingredients into a shaker filled with ice, shake vigorously, and strain into a chilled martini glasses. It should have a nice “crema” froth like an espresso.
- Garnish with 3 Harris coffee beans and grated dark chocolate.
