Mark as brewed
Dial-in a shot of espresso and stick it into the freezer. I use a sealed cup for this, to avoid any odors from altering the espresso aroma. Usually, 5 minutes will chill the espresso enough. The idea is to avoid the hot coffee melting the ice when mixing.
In a cocktail shaker mix vodka, coffee liquor, espresso, simple syrup, and ice. Shake until the cocktail is well chilled.
Strain into a chilled martini glass.
Garnish the cocktail with four coffee beans.
