Comment:

Forget the 'Vodka Red Bull', this is the cocktail connoisseur's way of combining caffeine and vodka.

Variant:

Some prefer the simpler equal parts version of the Espresso Martini but we think our recipe a tad more balanced. However, depending on your coffee liqueur and /or palate, you want to add 2.5ml to 5ml sugar syrup to our recipe.
