So what actually is a Martini?

Well according to Wiki!! 
 
The martini is a cocktail made with gin and vermouth, and garnished with an olive or a lemon twist.

Ingredients

  • 1 shot espresso coffee (doesn’t matter if it’s hot straight from the kettle)

  • 1 shot kahlua or coffee liqueur
  • Piece of chocolate to decorate
  • Ice

Preparation Method

  1. Put loads of ice and all the liquid in a shaker or jar and give it a really good shake- the longer you shake the more you get a frothy top.
