Low-Carb Espresso Martini Recipe

The weekend is a time to relax and refresh, and what better way to do it than with a scrumptious cocktail? We’re all about balancing indulgence and healthy living, so we’re shaking things up with a low-carb Espresso Martini. This concoction replaces the sugary coffee liqueur typically found in traditional recipes with some clever, keto-friendly substitutes, ensuring you can savor every sip without a trace of guilt.

An Espresso Martini is the perfect blend of bold, robust coffee flavor and the smooth, crisp notes of vodka, all wrapped up in a velvety cocktail. However, the coffee liqueur traditionally used is high in sugar, making it a no-go for those watching their carb intake. But worry not! We have a low-carb version that is just as delicious and satisfying.

  • Start with the Basics: Fill a shaker with ice cubes to begin your low-carb espresso martini adventure.
  • Mixing the Ingredients: Pour a shot of your preferred espresso or a dark roast cold brew into the shaker. Freshly brewed espresso works wonders but a good quality cold brew is an equally fabulous alternative.
  • Add the Spirits: Introduce 2 oz of your favorite vodka to the mix, elevating the cocktail to new heights.
  • Sweeten It Up: For the sweetness, instead of using high-carb simple syrup, opt for liquid allulose. Add about half a tablespoon. This sweetener is keto-friendly and doesn’t impact blood sugar levels, making it a smart choice for a low-carb lifestyle.
  • Flavor Enhancement: A teaspoon of vanilla extract is added for that subtle, sweet aroma and a hint of creamy flavor.
  • Creaminess Element: To bring a luxurious texture and richness to the cocktail, blend in a tablespoon of keto-friendly creamer or heavy cream. You can even use the homemade keto creamer recipe shared previously.
  • Shake and Pour: After adding all the ingredients, give it a good shake to combine all the flavors beautifully and pour it into your favorite martini glass.
  • Finishing Touch: The cocktail is perfectly delightful as is, but for those who like a little extra, a sprinkle of cocoa powder on top adds a hint of decadence and depth to the flavor profile. And there you have it—Cheers to a weekend well spent!
