Macchiato Martini

To cap off the weekend, how about we have a wee Latte Macchiato Martini?


In case you hadn't heard, I've gone on a bit of a liqueur buying bent. The nice sales lady at Vom Fass has probably seen me more regularly than many of my friends have. I wandered in the other day, promising myself it would just be a peek (no purchases allowed), that went terribly wrong of course and I walked out with a whole bottle of lovely latte macchiato liqueur.

It's more bitter than baileys but it isn't as black as kahlua - I'm sure there's a liqueur out there that exists in this exact form but I don't know what it is, so I'm pleased as punch to have found this bunch.

For this drink you'll need:

  • 1 part vodka
  • 1 part latte macchiatto liqueur
  • 2 parts milk
  • Shavings from a chocolate bar

Toss ingredients 1-3 into a shaker filled with ice. Sh-sh-shake it. Strain into glass of choice (it will be nice and foamy on the top), garnish with chocolate shavings. Curl up in bed with good book and enjoy the last bits of the weekend with this drink in hand.
