Cold Brew Martini – No Espresso Needed Recipe


  • 2 oz vodka: Use your favorite brand. Tito’s is recommended if you prefer a gluten-free option.
  • 1 oz cold brew coffee concentrate: Starbucks concentrate is easily accessible, but feel free to use your preferred brand.
  • 1 oz coffee liqueur: Kahlúa is a classic choice, though any coffee liqueur works well.
  • 1/4 oz coffee creamer (optional): This adds a touch of richness and sweetness. Choose a flavor that complements your taste (vanilla, caramel, etc.)
  • Ice
  • Coffee beans (for garnish)


  • Cocktail shaker
  • Martini glasses (or coupe glasses)
  • Measuring jigger


Chill your glasses: Place your martini or coupe glasses in the freezer for at least 15 minutes.

Combine ingredients: Add the vodka, cold brew concentrate, coffee liqueur, and coffee creamer (if using) to the cocktail shaker.

Fill with ice: Add a generous amount of ice to the cocktail shaker.

Shake vigorously: Secure the lid and shake the cocktail shaker vigorously for 30 seconds. This creates the signature frothy top and chills the drink.

Strain and serve: Strain the chilled martini into the chilled glasses.

Garnish: Top with three coffee beans for a classic espresso martini look.


Experiment with flavors: Play around with different coffee creamers or even try flavored vodkas to create your own unique variation.

Customize sweetness: Adjust the amount of coffee creamer or add a touch of simple syrup to tailor the sweetness to your liking.

Double the recipe: Easily make a batch for two or more by doubling the ingredients.

Enjoy your refreshing and delightful Cold Brew Martini! 🍸
