sugar syrup is easy to make yourself by heating equal parts water and sugar. 30 grams of sugar combined with 30 ml of water is enough for this recipe. Once the sugar has dissolved, the mixture will have turned into a syrup. Then leave it to cool down.
make espresso, or alternatively use strong coffee, and let it cool down before making the cocktail.
pour the espresso into a cocktail shaker, along with the vodka, sugar syrup and coffee liqueur. If you don't have a cocktail shaker, you can simply mix the ingredients very well, but the cocktail won't be as cold.
add a large handful of ice cubes to the cocktail shaker, and put on the lid. Shake the cocktail shaker vigorously for about 30 seconds. The cocktail will be very cold, and a layer of foam will have formed.
strain the cocktail into 2 pretty glasses, discarding the ice cubes. Garnish with the coffee beans and serve immediately. Enjoy!
