A New Year almost demands an attempt at a new beginning. We don’t start completely from “fresh” but we should make an effort to cast away habits and beliefs that are no longer serving the greater purpose of improving our lives. Resolutions are traditional.

This opportunity to “begin anew” is not to be shrugged aside. Embrace the moment and make the effort. Open the mind to new possibilities.

Maybe last month the idea of a coffee martini would not have appealed, but now with colder temps and the beginning of Carnival, this approach is making more sense.

The creative gang at Bonefish Grill know a thing or two about combining wonderful ingredients for happy outcomes.


1.5 oz. Vanilla vodka    
0.25 oz. Kahlua
0.25 oz. Dark Crème de Cacao
1 shot Fresh brewed espresso

Combine all ingredients into a pint glass filled with ice. Shake until ice cold and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with three espresso beans.
