This is a short, but very enjoyable cocktail, easy to drink after a lovely meal. It is also easy to make!


  • Tia Maria
  • Vodka
  • Cointreau
  • Small Shot of Expresso
  • Ice Cubes


  • Margarita Glass
  • Cocktail Shaker
  • Drink Strainer


  • Pour a double measure of Tia Maria (50ml) and equal measures (one shot of each), of Vodka and Cointreau (25ml) and a shot of expresso into the bottom of the cocktail shaker, with (about a third of the way up the cocktail shaker), the ice cubes.
  • Then shake the cocktail mix roughly 10/15 times over your shoulder.
  • Strain the cocktail, as you pour it from the shaker into the glass. Relax and enjoy!
