Rum Butterscotch Espresso Martini

Butterscotch Espresso Martini

Having made one butterscotch espresso martini for Easter, it was time to update it for another Easter. This time, we were chuffed to be able to collaborate with Bakedown Cakery to create a Butterscotch Eggspresso Martini! Read more about that here. So with that, it also came time to update the original recipe, so here it is - a funkier and boozier version, which swaps out the original Ord River Rum with a funky Jamaican overproof rum from one of the island’s oldest distilleries Hampden Estate. The rum is characterised by notes of over ripe fruits, which plays well with the chocolate and coffee. Since we came up with the original recipe, we’ve learnt that Distillery Botanica has discontinued making its chocolate liqueur so it was time to find a substitute! (and one that is available at the local liquor store)
