@vincehomemade is responsible for this recipe and I don't think I can ever look at a typical espresso or coffee martini again. Lol! He was throwing some ideas after he saw my previous Vietnamese Iced Coffee recipe. I was intrigued by this one in particular.
So here we are. I used the same coffee ice cubes method, only this time, it is used to shake the cocktail. I didn't add any condensed milk as coffee liqueur is used. You can add if desired. I just find it a bit too sweet and overpowering, in my humble opinion. Anyway, I know it is like 8 in the morning, but who is judging? Cheers!

When about to serve add some normal ice cubes into martini glassware to keep it chilled.
Place the spanner onto a serving cup.
Followed by the chamber.
Add coffee granules into the chamber.
Give it a light shake to even out.
Place the insert on top of the coffee.
Pack it down tightly.
*If your insert is the screw-on type, screw it down tightly and release it just a bit.*
Add 1 to 2 TBSP of boiling water into the chamber.
*Water has to be boiling.*
Let it sit for 30 secs.
Pour boiling water into the chamber in a circular motion.
Fill it up just below the brim.

Once the dripping stop, remove the cap and place it upside down on a table.
Remove the dripper and place it onto the cap.
*You can find out more about the Vietnamese dripper parts here.*
