Cappuccino Martini

Cappuccino Martini : ShortStaf’s 2020 Holiday Cocktail ☕️

Cappuccino Martini

This year, we were looking to make a decadent, smooth, and satisfying Christmas cocktail (and we think we’ve nailed it). We have all heard of an espresso martini, but have you tried our Cappuccino Martini? Made with Vodka, Kahlúa, and Bailey’s – this cocktail is our perfect end to 2020.

We finished off this cocktail with a Turbinado Sugar garnish and a dusting of cinnamon – just like we like our cappuccinos.

Cappuccino Martini Ingredients:

1.5 oz Tito’s Vodka

1 oz Kahlúa

1 oz Bailey’s Irish cream

1.5 oz frothy milk

Turbinado Sugar [for rim]

Sprinkle of cinnamon


First, prepare the Turbinado sugar rim by pouring some sugar onto a plate to rim your glass. Prepare your glass by rimming the glass with water, then twist the rim of the glass in the Turbinado sugar until the entire edge is covered.


Now, prepare the mixing tin. Fill the tin ¾ of the way with ice. First, add the vodka.

**Hint: Try substituting a flavored vanilla or caramel vodka for bonus points!**

Add the Bailey’s and Kahlúa. Shake vigorously.


Next, froth your milk. We do this by shaking the jug vigorously before pouring. Otherwise, you could use a whisk.

Add the frothed milk into the martini glass first. Then, slowly strain the cocktail from the tin into the martini glass.

Dust the top of your drink with cinnamon.


 Enjoy your new after [or before ?] -dinner drink

Happy holidays from ShortStaf!
