  • Shake vigorously for 20-30 seconds.

If you don’t have crème de cacao substitute using a 2:1:1 ratio of vodka, espresso, coffee liqueur, and 1 tbsp of simple syrup.

Try adding a tbsp of either Irish or heavy cream. It adds great feel and smoothness to the cocktail. If you don’t have cream, substitute with milk. This is totally optionally but really worth it!
