S’mores Espresso Martini

I love s’mores and I love espresso martini’s, so I thought it would be fun to combine the two to create this S’mores Espresso Martini! If you have never made an espresso martini at home, they are surprisingly simple to make with just a handful of ingredients. Garnished with a toasted marshmallow and a chocolate graham cracker rim, this drink is not just a cocktail but an experience!

Tips & Substitutions

First, lets talk about the base of this recipe - the espresso martini! It consists of 3 simple ingredients:

  • Vodka: Typically, I prefer Tito's or Kettle One, but for this recipe in particular we are bringing out that s'mores flavor by using either a whipped cream or marshmallow flavored vodka.
  • Kahlua: This is my preference when it comes to the added coffee liqueur. If you prefer a creamier base, you could sub this for Bailey's.
  • Espresso: I have found that in order to make a martini with a nice thick layer of foam at the top, the key is to use freshly brewed espresso. I like to use the Blonde Starbucks Nespresso pods for at home espresso martinis. 

Now for the fun part - the garnishes!

  • Chocolate graham cracker rim: This gives you a hint of s'mores with every sip!
  • Toasted marshmallow: Adding a toasted marshmallow is optional, really elevates the look of the martini. I used my culinary torch, but you could also toast it over a gas stovetop. I toasted them on my favorite reusable gold cocktail picks!

The cocktail glasses I used for these are my favorite for martinis - linking them here.

  • 1.5oz whipped cream OR marshmallow vodka
  • 1.5oz kahlua
  • 1oz espresso
  • Hot fudge (this works better if its fudge out of a jar, not syrup!)
  • 1/2 sheet graham cracker, crushed
  • 1 marshmallow


  1. Rim a martini glass with hot fudge and crushed graham cracker and place in the freezer for the glass to chill & the chocolate to set
  2. Place marshmallow on a cocktail skewer and toast with a kitchen torch or over a gas stovetop
  3. Add vodka, kahlua and espresso to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake well (you will want to shake for at least 1-2 minutes – foam should be forming at the top of the shaker)
  4. Pour the cocktail into the rimmed glass, top with the toasted marshmallow & ENJOY!
