The Ingredients

My local Total Wine had the Baileys Pumpkin Spice™ Irish Cream, so I didn’t have to substitute plain Irish cream with pumpkin spice (although that’s a nice option to have since this flavor is a limited edition).

I had no idea what demerara sugar was, but my local Publix had it in stock. It is raw sugar with a large grain and a hint of molasses. I had the coffee, cinnamon, and Kahlua on hand, and, of course, several martini glasses.

The Process

This martini is super easy to make and looks gorgeous with the cinnamon and sugar-rimmed glasses. I mixed the two in a ramekin then spread it in a small plate. That made it much easier to dip the glasses into the sugar mixture and get the rims thoroughly coated.

Mixing up the liquor was even easier than that. Just be sure to make the espresso ahead of time so it’s nice and cold. I used a French press, poured the coffee into a small container and refrigerated it overnight. Then it was just a matter of pouring everything into a shaker with ice, shaking and pouring.

I did try to garnish with a cinnamon stick, but my glasses were too deep. The cinnamon stick just sank under the liquid, so I skipped it.

So how was it?
