(makes one)

Two shot glasses of espresso 
Two shot glasses of vodka
Two drops of vanilla extract

Alternatively, you can use instant coffee. We recommend two teaspoons of instant coffee to one spoon of sugar 



Shake well in a tin jar or cocktail shaker with ice

Strain and pour into your favourite cocktail glass (ideally a Martini glass)

Tip: to make this extra sweet or to adapt into a fun dessert, blend the coffee mix and vodka with two tablespoons of vanilla, chocolate or caramel ice cream – take your pick.
