Mocha Express Cocktail

 Happy Thursday and welcome to Ladies Night at The Slow Roasted Italian!

Tonight's feature cocktail is the Mocha Express.  A cocktail that makes me think of smooth jazz, coffee houses and a great book.  A combination of your favorite espresso blend, enhanced by the fine flavors of Mexican coffee beans provided by Kahlua.  Bailey's Irish cream adds a luxurious smooth flavor from the Irish whiskey, cream and fine spirits and your best vodka for a kick!

So bring the house lights down, turn on your favorite sounds, pour yourself a Mocha Express and lose yourself in your own story.

Mocha Express
2 ounces Grey Goose vodka
3/4 ounce Bailey's Irish Cream
3/4 ounce Kahlua
1 ounce Espresso (prepared)

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
