Espresso martini recipe with creamy Godiva chocolate liqueur, espresso vodka, Rum chata and espresso. The perfect brunch cocktail.
I love an espresso martini and over the years I have perfected the recipe. I’ve found that I like my espresso martinis creamy, chocolatey and with a hint of cinnamon. I have made many along the way check out this mocha espresso martini.
What alcohol should I use in a espresso Martini?
Now this is the most important question. It is actually proven pretty hard to find espresso vodka. At larger liquor stores I have been able to find Van Gogh espresso vodka. There is also an espresso vodka from Three Olives. Another great alternative is Grind Espresso Shot. Technically it’s rum so it would not be a traditional martini but it is delicious.
If you want your espresso martini to have a deeper and richer flavor add Rum Chata. Rum Chata is a cream rum liqueur that has cinnamon and vanilla flavoring.
- Van Gogh Espresso Vodka
- Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
- Rum Chata (optional)

Don’t have an espresso maker?
Not a problem. Did you know you could buy store bought espresso at the grocery or convenience store? I’ve used Starbuck double shot espresso before. Now I do have a Nespresso machine so I make espresso a head of time and chill it.
- 2.7 oz Espresso
- 1oz Espresso Vodka
- 1 oz Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
- 1 oz Rum Chata
- 1/2 cup Ice
- Brew espresso and chill in refrigerator or freezer. In a shaker pour espresso, vodka, rum chata and Godiva Chocolate Liqueur over ice.
- Shake vigorously for about 30 seconds. Pour into a martini glass and serve cold.
- If you like a sweeter martini you can add chocolate syrup.
Van Gogh espresso vodka is my favorite for this recipe.
There is just something about an espresso martini that makes you feel sophisticated. If I am out with some friends if I order one it’s almost a snowball effect everyone remembers they love them and will also order one.
Well instead of spending $10-14 on one make a batch at home for you and your friends.
