    Very nice cocktail for company. My martini glasses hold 1/2 of one of these servings.
    I used to think I had to visit a professional bartender to get the right espresso martini. I've learned through this recipe that I can make my own in the comfort of my own home. I never seem to have any orange vodka in the house when I decide to make these, but I've found that adding a couple of splashes of orange juice is pretty good.
    I've been meaning to try this for quite a while, but I finally got around to it. We loved it! It's sort of a fresh take on the traditional Black Russian. Excellent!
    I was not sure if I would like the orange flavors in this drink, but I was wrong. The flavors are in perfect balance and it was absolutely delicious! This would be perfect for brunch, but I would indulge in this drink any time of day.
    All of our friends were so impressed with these. Sitting by the fire on Halloween night enjoying these martinis was wonderful. Every one of our guests LOVED them!
    As Ina would say...."this is FABULOUS!" It is and very easy to make. Great way to Wow your guests on Halloween!
