Cuppa Joe Martini and Hot Cuppa Joe recipe variations for year round enjoyment. Vodka, Hazelnut, Espresso.

This martini certainly fits the easy category with only three ingredients. Delicious, too. But there are more ways to make this martini even better year round. Theoretically the Cuppa Joe Martini could be changed up into a hot Cuppa Joe by substituting cold espresso for fresh hot espresso or fresh brewed coffee. Skip the lemon twist and add a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg to the hot brew and you’ll have a satisfying cup of warm bliss.
