The Coffee Cake Martini

Created by Mark Lopez and Associates for Panevino bar and lounge, $12

For those who love the look of a martini but hate the taste of vodka, Panevino’s Coffee Cake Martini comes to the rescue. This rich dessert drink is “cake in a cup,” made with Bailey’s Irish Cream, cinnamon schnapps, Kahlúa liqueur and a hint of triple sec—all mixed with espresso.

“The Coffee Cake Martini is perfect for the winter months because it gives you a sense of warmth without it being a hot drink,” Panevino assistant general manger Mark Lopez says.

  • 2 ounces Bailey’s Irish Cream
  • 1 ounce cinnamon schnapps
  • ¾ ounce triple sec
  • 2 ounces chilled espresso
  • ice

Combine the ingredients in a martini shaker with ice, shake well, then strain into a chilled martini glass to serve.
