Grappa Espresso Martini
An Italian pomace (grape leftovers from wine making) brandy; usually 34-40% ABV. Flavor largely depends on the quality and type for grapes used, much like wine.
A dark coffee liqueur made in Jamaica with rum, sugar, vanilla and coffee, very similar to Kahlúa; 20% ABV.
A coffee brewed by forcing a small amount of nearly boiling water under high pressure (9x atmospheric pressure) through finely ground coffee beans, producing a small serving known as a shot of espresso.
A syrup made from dissolving granulated sugar (sucrose) in water. Regular simple is made by combining 1:1 sugar:water by mass, rich simple is 2:1 sugar:water by mass although only 1.5 times as sweet as regular. We always use 1:1 syrup unless otherwise noted in the recipe itself.
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with coffee beans floating on top. #shake #straight
