Why Is There 3 Coffee Beans In An Espresso Martini?

What does 3 coffee beans in sambuca mean?

A shot of sambuca with seven coffee beans represents Rome's seven hills. A shot with one coffee bean, termed con la mosca, or "with the fly", is also popular.

The three coffee beans symbolise health, happiness, and wealth.

Stir the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice cubes until smooth. Serve immediately after straining into a chilled cocktail glass! Despite the fact that it isn't a true martini because it contains neither gin nor vermouth, it is one of several drinks whose names incorporate the term martini.

The espresso martini's best feature is the fluffy froth on top. If you want a creamy froth on top of your martini, shake violently the shaker after it has been shaken vigorously to ensure the natural oils in the coffee combine with the air bubbles.

Another thing to watch out for is the high alcohol content, as espresso martinis contain vodka and a liqueur, equaling roughly two standards per glass. Limit  to no more than two standard drinks per day.

Espresso martini has real coffee in it, but don't worry. It won't keep you awake all night – you can have one before or after dinner, or both!

The three coffee beans in an espresso martini are edible. Because they are whole beans, you would chew and eat them just like you would a regular coffee bean.
