This caramel topped espresso martini is loaded with flavor and SO delicious – perfect for a cozy night at home with a little bit of a coffee kick!

We’re loading this drink with caramel, vanilla, cinnamon, and coffee flavor – it is rich and indulgent, without being too heavy.

If you want to take a bit of the caffeine buzz off, you can use decaf, so this drink doesn’t keep you up all night.

I hope you love this boozy, buzzy drink as much as I do!

How to Make Espresso Martini Frothy

Espresso martinis are known for a light, fluffy, creamy texture on top.

To get this – instead of the darker, thin looking espresso I posted below, you need to shake it vigorously.

If your Espresso Martini isn’t frothy, like above, you need to shake, shake, shake, shake some more! Since we’re topping with whipped cream, however, you can always shake a bit less and let the cream add to the frothy texture.

To Make This Caramel Espresso Martini Recipe You’ll Need:

  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • 3/4 ounce coffee liqueur (Kahlúa)
  • 1/4 ounce crème de cacao (white)
  • 4 oz espresso, hot or chilled
  • 1 – 1 1/2 cups ice to shake with
  • Whipped cream
  • 1 tbsp Caramel sauce, to garnish
  • Cinnamon stick, to garnish

What Vodka To Use For Caramel Espresso Martini:

You can use any vodka you like for this cocktail – but we love adding different flavored vodkas in this mixed drink to add different notes.

I am calling for Smirnoff Kissed Caramel vodka – but you can use vanilla, whipped cream, cake, or or just plain vodka, too!
