How to make the perfect Pumpkin Spice Espresso Martini

HOW DO I GET THE PERFECT FROTH / FOAM ON MY PUMPKIN SPICE MARTINI?

Easy – just shake the ingredients with lots of ice for at least 20 seconds. The more you shake, the more microfoam builds up, giving you that velvety froth when you pour it into your glass.

I DON’T HAVE A SHAKER. WHAT CAN I USE?

You don’t need one! Use anything with a well-fitting lid, like a protein shaker, mason jar, etc. Just make sure the lid is screwed on tight, to stop it getting messy.

WHY DO I NEED TO STRAIN MY PUMPKIN SPICE MARTINI?

Straining removes the shards of ice after shaking. It also helps your cocktail look clearer. You don’t need a special cocktail strainer; a tea strainer works just as well.

WHAT’S THE BEST COFFEE ROAST FOR ESPRESSO?

Espresso (freshly) roasted coffee! Using good quality medium roasted beans, which you can grind up yourself at home, also works well.
