Is it happy hour yet??
So it is Friday evening and you are prepping for a big night out (or dinner with the family)! After your long, exhausting week what you really need is a coffee, but a nice cold adult beverage sounds soooo good!
–what to do?? Quickly whip together this awesome tropicaf martini and your problem is easily solved! Check out the ingredient list for this drink and tell me if you can think of a better way to start the weekend?? Ha! I didn’t think so! I have the martini glasses chillin in the freezer as I type! 5 O’Clock won’t come soon enough!!
Servings: 1 delicious drink!
- 1 1/2-2 oz Malibu (or kahlua or Baileys, or butterscotch schnapps or a combo). Try not to go over 2 oz of alcohol or you will lose the flavor of the drink and it may end up being a very short night regardless of the coffee!
- 3 oz Silks’s vanilla coconut milk
- 1/2-1 tsp instant coffee
- chocolate syrup or dark chocolate shavings (optional garnish)
- maraschino cherry (optional garnish)
Make sure your martini glass is frozen. If not, place a couple of pieces of ice in your glass and add water. Let sit while you prep the drink. FYI–I paid for college working as a bartender and the secret to a really great martini is making sure it is SUPER COLD! So don’t skip this step, PLEASE!
In your shaker, add the coconut milk, BOOZE, instant coffee and a 1/2 c ice. Shake the daylights out of it. When you are done shaking, shake some more! Dump the water out of your martini glass, pour the contents of the shaker into the glass, and garnish!
