Martini is one of the most delicious and famous cocktails in existence. The original Martini was made out of Gin and Vermouth. But since everybody is free to experiment with it, in every way they want to, hundreds of Martini recipes are in existence, nowadays. Out of all these recipes, we think we found the most special! A Coffee Martini with Butterscotch Schnapps. This cocktail is recommended for everybody that feels like enjoying a nice Martini and simultaneously needs a wake-up call. We use our very own Yirgacheffe for this particular drink. The Yirgacheffe is an unwashed coffee, with part of the pulp still attached to the bean while drying. This gives the coffee a vigorous and fruity character. Butcherschotch or ‘boterbabbelaars’ in Dutch, is sweet tasting candy, made from butter and sugar. For Butterschotch Schnapps, rum and vanilla are added to the mixture. A sweet drink, that in combination with Vodka and Batavia Dutch coffee is transformed into the ultimate Coffee Martini. Without further ado, this is how you can make Coffee Martini with Butterschotch Schnapps at home! Also check out our other recipes here
