After a few days spent with relatives, there’s a good chance your go-to espresso martini recipe might not do the trick. So, we tweaked and combined a few of our favorite recipes to create this spirited cure for any time of year holiday stresses: the espresso whiskey martini, a dessert and cocktail wrapped into one delicious drink. Sweet, hazelnut-y Frangelico liquor adds a wintery element to this coffee-forward cocktail that we can’t get enough of.
