Easter Delight: Affogato Espresso Martini with a Twist!

As Easter approaches, it's time to indulge in some delightful treats that combine the richness of dessert with the sophistication of a cocktail.

This year, we're shaking things up with an Affogato Espresso Martini that can be infused with a variety of liqueurs to tantalise your taste buds. Whether you're hosting a gathering or simply treating yourself, this recipe promises to elevate your Easter celebrations.

Affogato Espresso Martini

Main Base Preparation:

For the foundation of this indulgent Easter treat, we start with a harmonious blend of TMD Neutral vodka, a luscious liqueur of your choice, freshly brewed espresso, and a generous scoop of velvety vanilla bean ice cream.
30ml TMD Neutral vodka
15ml Liqueur of your choice
15ml fresh espresso, cooled
crushed ice
1 small scoop vanilla bean ice-cream
Garnishes of your choice

Combine the vodka, liqueur, fresh espresso, and crushed ice in a cocktail shaker.
  1. Shake vigorously for about a minute to chill the ingredients and create a frothy texture.
  2. Strain the mixture into a Martini glass.
  3. Carefully place a small scoop of vanilla bean ice cream over the top.
  4. For a final touch of elegance, garnish your cocktail with decorative elements such as coffee beans, chocolate shavings, a drizzle of caramel sauce, or even Easter-themed chocolate, allowing each sip to be a celebration of flavours.

    Serve and Enjoy:

    • Present your Affogato Espresso Martini to your guests or savour it yourself as a decadent Easter treat.
    • Encourage everyone to stir the cocktail gently before taking a sip, allowing the flavours to mingle and the ice cream to melt slightly into the espresso mixture.
    • Each sip offers a delightful combination of rich coffee flavours, creamy sweetness from the ice cream, and hints of liqueurs.


    Choc 'n' Chilli Twist: Substitute the Liqueur with Choc 'n' Chilli Liqueur for a spicy chocolate kick. Garnish with a small chili pepper or a sprinkle of chili flakes for an extra fiery touch.

    Caramel Indulgence: Replace the Liqueur with Caramel Vodka, Butter Caramel, or Salty Caramel Liqueur for a caramel lover's dream. Top with a drizzle of caramel sauce and a sprinkle of sea salt for added decadence.

    Nutty Delight: Infuse the cocktail with the nutty flavour of Macadamia or Wattle Toffee Liqueur instead. Garnish with crushed macadamia nuts and a dusting of cinnamon for a tropical twist.

    Classic Coffee: Use espresso or coffee liqueur for a traditional Affogato Espresso Martini experience.

    Choc Orange: Combine the rich flavours of chocolate and orange by using our Jaffa Liqueur. Garnish with a twist of orange peel for a citrusy touch.

    Chai Spice: Add a delightful twist by using Chai Liqueur. Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon or a cinnamon stick for a warm and aromatic finish.

    Liquorice Lovers: For those who enjoy the unique taste of liquorice, try Dutch Salty Liquorice or Licorichoc Liqueur. Garnish with a piece of liquorice candy for an extra burst of flavour.
