One of the best espresso drinks Minneapolis has to offer is iced! Iced espresso is essentially just espresso serviced over ice. It’s as simple as that. It’s like an iced Americano with a twist. All you need is your classic Folly SOB Espresso and some ice. But let’s take it up a notch, shall we? Ingredients:

  • Optional: Your sweetener or flavoring of choice (we liked vanilla syrup)
Once you brew your espresso, just mix all the other ingredients together and enjoy! The milk softens the intensity of the espresso and you can use your favorite sweetener or flavor addition.  It’s as simple as that!

Homemade Mocha

If you’re having a bit of a sweet tooth, then the homemade mocha can easily sort you out. So here’s what you’re going to need: Ingredients
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar
  • 5-2oz espresso shot
  • 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup of heated milk of your choice
  • 1 tablespoon of heavy cream
  • A dollop of whip cream based on your taste
To your shot of espresso, add the sugar and unsweetened cocoa powder. Make sure you stir until everything dissolves into a sauce. Slowly begin adding your heated milk and continuously stir it until it’s well incorporated into the recipe. Add the heavy cream last as this is going to help thicken up the drink. Add a dollop of whip cream on top for a punch of foamy sweetness.

Espresso Martini

Espresso Martini
The Espresso Martini is a classic coffee-based cocktail that everyone needs to try at least once.  The Espresso Martini is very easy to make, as it needs only a few simple ingredients that you may already have at home. Once you learn how to make this, you’ll be sipping away at the best homemade martini espresso in the Twin Cities in no time. Ingredients
  • 5-2oz espresso shot
  • 50 ml of coffee liqueur
  • 75 ml of vodka
  • 10 ml of simple sugar syrup
  • Ice (option)
  • Top with 3 coffee beans as garnish
Begin by putting your martini glass in the fridge as this will ensure that it’s cold by the time you need to pour your drink. Allow the shot of espresso to cool. Afterward, combine your syrup, ice, vodka, espresso, and liqueur together into a shaker with ice. Make sure to continuously shake this until your cocktail shaker begins to feel icy. Don’t shake for too long or the ice will begin to water down your espresso martini. Get your martini glass out of the fridge and pour your cocktail into it. Feel free to garnish your martini with coffee beans or even a small dollop of cream.
