Happy Hour: Triple Shot Espresso

Bean there, done that? Create a cuppa joe cocktail that delivers a java jolt.

- 1 shot Van Gogh Espresso Vodka
- 1 shot KahlĂșa coffee liqueur
- 1 shot espresso coffee, chilled
- Simple syrup, ground espresso beans and Demerara sugar (for rim)

To make simple syrup, bring 2 cups of sugar and 1 cup of water to a boil. Once the sugar has dissolved, remove from heat. Let cool to room temperature. Dip rim of chilled martini glass in simple syrup, then in a mixture of ground espresso beans and Demerara sugar; let dry. Combine vodka, liqueur and coffee with ice in a cocktail shaker, and shake well. Strain into the glass.

Cheers Too martini glass, $30 for set of four; Mikasa, 800-833-4681,
