If you're looking for a pick-me-up post-dinner, the Espresso Martini is here to jolt you awake with its boozy magical powers.

The cold coffee-flavored cocktail mixes vodka with espresso coffee, coffee liqueur (usually Kahlúa) and simple syrup. Garnish with a few coffee beans, and it's picture perfect.
