I’ve been cheating.
I’ve been cheating on my good, old reliable chum, gin, with a dark, classy, mysterious mistress. In short, dear reader, I am addicted to Espresso Martinis.
That would be two parts vodka and two parts espresso to one part Kahlua, in case you’re wondering. Shaken vigorously over ice. Espresso beans optional.
The last time I ordered one, my friend looked in in mock-horror that I hadn’t ordered something gin-based, which made me wonder, would gin in an Espresso Martini work? My heart says ‘HELL no, you mad woman’, but my head says ‘errrm, remember Hotel Chocolat’s Cocoa Gin?’
Watch this space.
