Turn off the heat and allow the mixture to cool. Put 2 martini glasses in the fridge to chill.

Step 3

Once the sugar syrup is cold, pour 1 tbsp into a cocktail shaker along with a handful of ice, the vodka, espresso and coffee liqueur. Shake until the outside of the cocktail shaker feels icy cold.
