Liquid dessert with a powerful punch: meet the tiramisu martini

Since James Bond first gandered up to a bar, it's been popularly accepted that martinis are better shaken than stirred. Although this much sweeter — and oh, so much easier to drink — version is anything but the dry classic cocktail beloved by Agent 007, the same rule applies.

Get ready to shake up some fun!

You will need:

  • 3.5 fl oz coffee liqueur
  • 3.5 fl oz amaretto
  • 3.5 fl oz chocolate liqueur
  • 3.5 fl oz cream

Here's how:

  1. With the help of a funnel, pour all of the liquids into a bottle, seal it closed and give it a good shake.
  2. For presentation, serve in a cocktail glass with a dollop of whipped cream (or more if you're feeling cheeky!) and a ladyfinger. Dust with coffee powder.

If you have any leftovers (doubtful!), be sure to store in the refrigerator as otherwise the cream in the drink may sour. We can't have that, can we? If you're expecting more than a few guests, you can also prepare beforehand and keep cool until serving. Another idea: bottle up the holiday cheer as gifts for all your friends... just make sure I'm on your list!

Here's mud in your eye!
