The Baileys Irish Martini is extra thick, rich and creamy. This is a decadent variation of traditional espresso martinis. Be aware the Baileys version is rather sweet. If you prefer just a touch of creamy sweetness, dial back the Irish Cream and add more espresso. Irish whiskey is a nice touch to espresso cocktails in my opinion. I love the hint of smoky warmth it brings to the flavor.
This is an easy to make three ingredient cocktail. The mint sprig adds wonderful aroma to the drink as it is sipped, but it isn’t a deal breaker to leave it off if it isn’t available. This drink could also be shaken and poured over ice if you prefer.
