How to make an espresso cocktail

Day 3 of 30 Cocktails in 30 Days Challenge: the Wake Me Up espresso cocktail.

Monday. No one likes Monday. It’s the day everyone dreads. But here’s something we’ve found makes the week’s toughest day slip by a little easier and keep you going at the same time.

We had a cocktail party a few years ago and a friend wanted to keep drinking but was so tired she could barely keep her eyes open. The cocktail caffeine mix was the perfect solution, and it’s very tasty too.

How to make a Wake Me Up

How to make an espresso cocktail

Here’s what you need:

For each drink

  • 1 measure of vodka
  • 1 measure of Baileys
  • 1 measure of butterscotch schnapps
  • A shot of espresso or a double measure of strong coffee
  • Ice
  • Cocktail shaker, champagne bowl

Here’s what you do:

  1. Put the ingredients into the shaker
  2. Shake the mix hard
  3. Strain into the glass
  4. Add a couple of ice cubes from the shaker

You can always add more coffee if you need it, though you’ll probably need more sweet flavours to the drink. You can add more butterscotch schnapps. If you don’t want the extra alcohol, you can add a splash of vanilla, butterscotch or caramel syrup, or you can add some simple sugar syrup.

This is a great drink to get your night started or to reinvigorate a night already underway.
