KRUPS Vanilla Espresso Martini Cocktail Recipe

I love coffee but I am pretty particular about the coffee that I drink. I like my coffee's flavored or with a flavored creamer. My hubby is a lot like me when it comes to coffee and he is all about having his coffee sweetened up and with a lot of cream.

The great folks over at KRUPS sent me the following recipe to share with all of you in honor of National Coffee day! Photo and recipe in the post is courtesy of KRUPS.
