To begin the cocktail recipe, fill the cocktail shaker with ice. Ice is an essential aspect of cocktail mixing as it helps in diluting and chilling the ingredients. It also aids in enhancing and balancing the flavours of the drink.
Using a cocktail jigger, measure and pour 40ml of Ketel One Vodka, 20ml of coffee liqueur, 30ml of espresso and 20ml of simple syrup into the shaker.
Close the lid and shake vigorously until the surface of the shaker feels chilled.
Using a cocktail strainer, strain the mixture into a chilled martini glass. This will remove any unwanted pieces of ingredients or ice shards.
Garnish the drink with three coffee beans and serve immediately.
