Mole Coffee Martini Recipe

  (491 pts)

Ring in the New Year with a Mole Coffee Martini. Mole is a chili-chocolate sauce used in Mexican cuisine. This recipe uses mole bitters which are delicious in coffee martinis. It is easy to make and the spiced sugar-espresso rim add a fun look and flavor.


  • 1/4 cup espresso-ground coffee

  • 1/4 cup spiced brown sugar (1 cup brown sugar, 1 tbsp cinnamon, ½ tsp nutmeg and ½ tsp vanilla extract).

  • Enough molé bitters to rim the glass (Try Bittermens' Xocolatl Mole Bitters, look to a local bitters maker or create your own bitters blend.)

  • 2 ounces vodka

  • 1 ounce Kahlua


  1. Make a 1:1 blend of espresso-ground coffee and spiced brown sugar.

  2. Rim a martini glass with the molé bitters and the sugar-espresso mixture.

  3. Shake and strain the vodka and Kahlua into the martini glass.

  4. Serve immediately.



I'm a huge fan of seasonal lattes like pumpkin spice and peppermint mocha. I love visiting local coffee shops with friends & making coffee a social experience.
