Win $5,000 from Kahlua!, Seattle & Kahlúa Espresso Martini: PART TWO!

Continued from PART ONE

It was great to get out for the night and have a hotel room and bed all to myself! I thought I would toss and turn from lack of sleep missing my family... Oh BOY, was I wrong!!
The absolutely delicious, late night dinner, with a side of Kahlúa and fellow AllStars, Allrecipes Staff, and Kahlua representatives, assured heavy slumber as soon as my head made contact with the pillow! (Party animals!)

AllStars were treated to a wonderful dinner at Cuoco. Everything was enjoyed
from octopus legs (yikes!) to heavenly pastas and desserts.

Back at home...

I was so excited on my return about the video, my experience and that I actually LOVED the drink I was representing, I made my husband and I each one. (Okay, maybe two or three.) He loved it as well and is looking forward to trying all the seasonal flavors!

So I was too excited to run out and get some ABSOLUT vodka THAT NIGHT,
but this was an acceptable substitution in my opinion! :)

The reveal...

So, here it is! The finished product, sparkling new, straight off the shelves (the tippity-top one, of course!), online for your viewing pleasure.... Kahlúa, Allrecipes, and D.G. Says in... 


Your turn to 

shake it up!



 Kahlúa Espresso Martini

The Recipe

Legend has it the Kahlúa Espresso Martini was created in the 1980s by a London cocktail guru late one night for a famous supermodel. The mixologist had the brilliant idea of combining a shot of espresso and vodka with our coffee and cane spirit to create a martini like no other. Perfect for a brunch with friends, an after-dinner cocktail or before a big night out.


1.5 parts KAHLÚA
1 fresh brewed espresso

How to mix it:

Fill a shaker with ice, add Kahlúa, ABSOLUT VODKA and a fresh brewed espresso. Shake vigorously, and strain into a chilled martini glass.

Tip from D.G. Says:

I learned this great tip during the making of videos!: To chill your glasses, rinse under cold water and place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes!
