Irish Tiramisu Martini- Served in a Glass
Makes 2 servings
1/4 cup espresso
4 oz Baileys Original Irish Cream
1/3 cup sweet mascarpone cheese
2 scoops vanilla, chocolate or coffee ice cream
2 to 4 ice cubes
2 soft ladyfinger cookies sliced lengthwise
** you can use other sandwich cookies, or Milano’s shortbread cookies instead
2 tbsp Nutella or Chocolate spread
Blend together the espresso, Irish Cream, ice cream, mascarpone, and ice until smooth. Turn on the Froth/Whip setting on the blender and whisk for 5 seconds.
Drizzle chocolate syrup along inside edges of over-sized martini glasses using a squeeze bottle (as shown in the photo). If that seems hard, pour some chocolate sauce into a glass plate, then invert the glasses onto the plate to cover the rim with chocolate. Put the glasses in the freezer for 2-3 minutes so the chocolate sets a little.
Assembling the Drink
Now pour the mixture from the blender into the glasses. To serve the Irish Tiramisu Martini, take 2 sandwich cookies (you can use ladyfingers or Milano’s shortbread cookies), lather a generous helping of Nutella on the cookies and make a Nutella Cookie sandwich. Take a white serving plate, position the Tiramisu Martini in the center, and serve along with the sandwich cookies.
