If your go-to drink order is an espresso martini, you’re going to love what Kahlúa has in store. According to Delish, the brand’s launching an Espresso Style Martini this spring. The drink is made using vodka, Kahlúa coffee liqueur and roasted Arabica coffee, according to the product description on the Kahlúa website. And the best part of all? It comes in a can! So serving it is as easy as popping the tab and pouring it straight into a martini glass.
The beverage also yields a nitro foam once it’s poured, so you get a bar-quality experience every time.
This video from the Kahlúa YouTube channel shows off just how satisfying serving this cocktail will be:
The cans will come in a pack of four, and each can serves two drinks. You’ll likely be able to purchase this wherever Kahlúa beverages are sold. You can visit the Kahlúa website to find a retailer near you.
In case you’re craving an espresso martini now and can’t wait until spring to sip on this boozy coffee beverage, you can also try making the drink from scratch. It’s not as convenient as pouring it straight from the can, but the tastiness will be well worth your efforts.
This recipe from Kahlúa requires you to mix equal parts Kahlúa, vodka and espresso together with ice and a shaker. It may not come from the can, but if you’ve got an espresso maker and a shaker, this recipe isn’t all that hard to pull off. Check out the simple process demonstrated in this video from the brand’s YouTube channel:
And if you’re going to go to the trouble of making this drink from scratch, you might as well make it extra special by adding delicious flavors. This recipe for a chocolate espresso martini from Kitchen Swagger, for instance, looks deliciously sweet.
It calls for vanilla vodka, Kahlúa midnight, Godiva chocolate liqueur and espresso. Drizzle chocolate into the glass before serving. Yum!
You can get even more out-of-the-box with this recipe for a salted caramel espresso martini from Creative Culinary. It’s equal parts sweet and salty and still delivers on coffee flavor. The recipe calls for Baileys Salted Caramel, espresso and rum instead of vodka. Add in chocolate chips and crushed pretzels for an extra tasty garnish:
Feel free to test your bartending skills now by making this cocktail from scratch. But rest easy knowing it won’t be long before you have the convenience of drinking it fresh from the can. Because drinking your five o’clock favorite should be as easy as your morning coffee order, shouldn’t it?
