Cocktail of the Week: Butcher Chef Espresso

Sure, a glass of wine or a beer is a nice way to unwind — but every now and then, you deserve a happy hour that's a little more...hmmm. What's the word? Refined! Kelly Sparks of Queen Bee Mixology is graciously sharing a new cocktail with us every week, just in time for Happy Hour.

The Butcher Chef Espresso martini with Amarula is an absolutely delicious coffee cocktail that's so sweet and creamy — it's like the vodka just came along for the ride.


  • 1 oz. vodka
  • 3/4 oz. Amarula
  • 3/4 oz. Kahlua
  • 1 double shot of espresso


  1. Put all ingredients into a shaker and shake well to mix well.
  2. Add ice and shake again to chill, double strain into a coupe glass.
  3. Garnish with a toasted marshmallow.
