Cocktail of the week: The Malone’s dark Irish espresso martini | The good mixer

This has just the right ratio of booze, coffee and sugar to make the perfect post-dinner pick-me-up, with a non-negotiable Guinness float to complement the stout in the whiskey. It’s on the new cocktail list at our Greyhound Bar, a modern twist on the Irish pub, and would be just the ticket to warm the soul at Bonfire Night drinks outdoors.

Dark Irish espresso martini

Serves 1

25ml dark Irish whiskey – we use Black Irish, because it’s made with stout
25ml Tia Maria (or other coffee liqueur, at a pinch)
25ml vanilla syrup
Monin or similar
60ml (ie, 1 double shot) freshly brewed espresso, left to cool
100ml Guinness
, to float
3 coffee beans
, to garnish

Put the whiskey, Tia Maria, vanilla syrup and espresso in a shaker filled with ice, and shake until well chilled. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass, top carefully with the Guinness, so the foam floats to the top, garnish with coffee beans and serve.
