Let’s Cocktail! Dairy-Free Espresso Martini

The drink of the moment…

The espresso martini is having a *moment* and for good reason… they are absolutely delicious. Obviously it’s not a new drink, but I’m loving the resurgence of this classic cocktail! And truthfully I’ve never had one until recently (because I’m gluten- and dairy-free), and they are most often made with Kahlúa or other cream-based liquor.

But while in Palm Beach a few weeks ago, our server offered to shake me up one without dairy and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. So delicious! And then I wanted to try it at home… and you know we love our coffee around here, so to pair espresso with a cocktail is a match made in heaven.

I’ve been testing out recipes and this is my favorite so far… creamy (but not too heavy), sweet (but not too sweet), and fresh. Trust me, you will love. (My drink inspirations are all saved here!)

So let’s spice up your weekend (or Thursday night… yolo!) with a dairy-free espresso martini, shall we?!
