Whipped espresso martini recipe takes the Dalgona coffee trend to the next level

Have you tried the Dalgona coffee trend that is all over TikTok (and now the rest of the internet)?

People have been loving the method of whipping together instant coffee and sugar to create a beautiful frothy drink.

Well now it’s getting boozy as the latest take on the drink is an espresso martini version.

Spirits and Cocktail Specialist, Lucy Morton decided to experiment with her own frothy version of the classic drink at home.

She uses Courvoisier which is a brand of cognac so have a look through your drinks cupboard to see if you can find some.

She also makes everything in a cocktail shaker but if you don’t normally make drinks at home and have one lying around, Lucy says you can use a protein shaker.

To make the Dalgona espresso martini, you will need:

  • 2 tbsp Instant Coffee
  • 2 tbsp Caster Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Hot Water
  • 50ml Milk (Lucy says oat or almond milk work if you want to make it dairy-free)
  • 50ml Courvoisier VSOP
  • 25ml Vanilla/Caramel/Butterscotch syrup OR 12.5 ml Vanilla essence and 12.5ml sugar syrup
  • Ice
  • Electric or hand whisk
  • Cocktail shaker or protein shaker

How to make the Dalgona espresso martini
