Let’s Finish This Week Off With a Espresso Martini, Shall We?

After the week we’ve had, let’s just say Recess needs a drink.  What better way to end chaos and craziness with a delicious Espresso Martini made with Three Olives Vodka.  And it has our two favorite ingredients, alcohol and espresso.  So, we’re making our martinis, putting our heels up and listening to “funky” tunes on Spotify.  Now that’s better.

About Three Olives Vodka

Polished. Approachable. Full of Verve. Dubbed the London Vodka (it was imported from England), Three Olives went beyond the classic vodka martini. After being acquired by New Jersey-based Proximo Spirits, Three Olives Vodka now has 20 different flavors including Mango, Rootbeer, and Marilyn Monroe Strawberry giving consumers endless cocktail possibilities. Their vodka is also vegan-friendly and does not contain nuts or lactose; it is also processed without gluten. I think even James Bond would be impressed. Follow Three Olives on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. Check out their website by clicking here (you must be 21 or over).

Recess says, “You should be dancing.”

    It seems as though you are combining a Chocolate Martini with an Espresso Martini! A traditional martini consists of 2 ingredients, plus garnish. An Espresso martini isn’t made with chocolate vodka. It is made with espresso vodka, which Three Olives makes, and creme de cacao. Anything more and you have a sweet, sickly concoction. Ditch the espresso coffee, Amaretto, Kahlua, and especially the Baileys. Garnish with espresso beans. Try it. You’ll love it!
