  1. Espresso Martini

    Add to a shaker with ice, (espresso last). Shake and double strain into a martini glass.

    I usually drink my coffee light to medium roast but I find for this cocktail it really benefits from a proper dark Italian roast.

We only had three patients left, given just a little longer to recover form their recent op’s before they were to be transferred to the airport & flown home.
    One Patient we had was a 17yo RAF
