Congleton Nub News has joined forces with a regular reader to share a 'Cocktail of the Week' feature.

This week, Josh has created another ice-cream based cocktail, since you all seemed to enjoy the Adult Ice Cream Soda so much.

The 'Espresso Icetini' is an Espresso Martini with a twist - and we love it!

Find out how to make it below...


  • generous scoop of ice-cream - this cocktail used vanilla, but pick whichever flavour you prefer
  • 25ml vodka
  • 50ml coffee
  • 25ml sugar syrup
  • 25ml coffee liqueur


  1. add all of your liquids to a shaker
  2. shake hard for 30 seconds
  3. add ice and shake for another 15 - 20 seconds
  4. add the scoop of ice-cream to a martini glass or tumbler
  5. strain your shaken cocktail over the top, being sure to include all of the foam

Tip - this cocktail is great if you let the ice-cream melt a bit before you get stuck in.

Check back next week for another Cocktail of the Week, shared each Friday to get the party started.

Alternatively, take a look at last week's cocktail feature here.
