The Story Behind The Espresso Tim Tam Martini
I recently visited Australia, and wherever I turned two things were always present: Tim Tam cookies and espresso Martinis. Tim Tam's popularity was obvious, they are delicious chocolate cookies, but I initially couldn't figure out why espresso martinis were so popular Down Under. After getting to know the country's obsessive coffee culture, the popularity was obvious. Aussies simply love coffee in all forms — it's probably all the caffeine they consume that makes them so friendly. When I returned stateside, I decided to create a cocktail that combined the two. If you can't find Tim Tams feel free to sub in another chocolate cookie.
