  • 0.5 oz simple syrup
  • 1 oz espresso freshly pulled & chilled

Instructions

  • Add vodka, coffee liqueur, simple syrup and chilled espresso to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled

Notes

  • For the simple syrup, you can use a store-bought sugar syrup or make your own with a 1:1 sugar to water solution.
  • To chill the espresso, pull a fresh shot and then place in the freezer for a few minutes.
  • If you don't have a way to make espresso at home, you can swap the espresso shot with cold brew concentrate, which works well too.
