Spiced Chocolate Espresso Martini with Cinnamon Whipped Cream

  • Author: Molly
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 2 cocktails (easily multiplied) 1x



For the Whipped Cream:

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Kahlua liqueur

For the Martinis:

  • ⅔ cup freshly brewed espresso, cooled slightly
  • 1/4 cup Kahlua liqueur
  • ⅓ cup plain vodka
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate liqueur (I used Godiva)
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 1-inch fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
  • Espresso beans, for garnish


For the Whipped Cream:

  1. Place the cream in the bowl of stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment (or you can do it with a hand-held mixer, or if you’re really hardcore, by hand using a whisk).
  2. Beat the cream until it begins to thicken, about 2 minutes. Add in the powdered sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and liqueur.
  3. Continue whipping until soft peaks form, about 4-5 minutes. Refrigerate until ready to use (do not do this too far ahead or your cream will “deflate”).

For the Martini:

  1. Combine all the ingredients for the martini (except the espresso beans) in a shaker with ice and shake well.
  2. Strain the mixture into two chilled martini glasses and garnish each glass with a dollop of the whipped cream and a couple of espresso beans. Serve!
