Recipe: Tim Tam Martini from InterContinental Sydney Double Bay

Tim Tam Martini

During these unprecedented times, when staying at home is of the utmost importance, us here at The AU Review are going to be doing everything we can to help readers live their best lives, indoors.

As with many other media companies who typically focus on getting folks out and about, we’re shifting to adapt to the necessary lock-downs taking place all over the world. One way we’ll be doing so is simply by sharing our favourite recipes.

Over the next few weeks (or months, who knows) we’ll be publishing the cocktail and food recipes that we find most exciting, so that when you aren’t ordering in to support your favourite venues, you’ll know enough to quickly throw together some top-class concoctions.

Tim Tam Martini from InterContinental Sydney Double Bay

Mansion-esque luxury hotel InterContinental Sydney Double Bay may be best known to Sydneysiders because of the stunning rooftop pool, impeccable bay views, and elegant rooms. But the drinks at Stillery Bar & Dining are reason enough to head along to this ritzy address. They are known for getting quite playful with their concoctions too, and this Tim Tam Martini presents a strong case. We’ve sourced the very simple recipe so you can recreate it at home.


  • 50ml Vodka
  • 60ml Espresso
  • 25ml Kahlua
  • 2 tablespoons sugar syrup
  • Ice cubes
  • 1 Tim Tam biscuit


  1. Add all ingredients in a cocktail shaker to combine.
  2. Shake well for 10-15 seconds.
  3. Strain into a martini glass and serve with a Tim Tam to garnish.
