Midnight Martini

new year's eve cocktail - the midnight martiniThe Midnight Martini is an interestingly simple cocktail that, when darker liqueurs are used, looks as dark as midnight. It does include a coffee liqueur (coffee brandy can also be used) which could keep you going to midnight if there’s any caffeine in the spirits. Try this one out with Van Gogh’s Espresso or Double Espresso Vodka and Kahlua, it’s a wonderful match. Midnight Martinis are also often served as a shooter, just shake, strain into a shot glass and go for it.
