They say attention to detail will get you everywhere. And when 'they' say this, what they mean (in this case at least) is: “grind your own espresso beans people.” The freshly prepared Italian espresso in this martini elevates it from the rudimentary after dinner or 11 pm pick-me-up-I-need-to-keep-dancing espresso martinis and makes it truly magnificent. There is probably a decent amount of alcohol in this, but your taste buds will be too enamored with smoky and smooth coffee flavor characteristics to really notice. Take note, brain: this is stronger than it appears. Quite a delightful treat for coffee lovers.
