Alternatives to Fireball:

If Fireball isn’t your cup of tea, don’t fret – you have some fantastic substitutes at your disposal. You can opt for bourbon, vodka, or even rum to tailor this cocktail to your taste. That’s the beauty of this drink; it’s customizable, allowing you to craft it to suit your preferences perfectly!

To transform this Fireball Espresso Martini recipe into a delectable mocktail that’s equally enjoyable, you can make a few simple substitutions while keeping the same great flavors. Start by omitting the Fireball whisky, as this is where the alcoholic content comes from. Instead, let’s focus on the rich coffee and salted caramel notes that make this drink so special.

Here’s a mocktail-friendly version of the recipe:

Salted Caramel Coffee Mocktail Recipe:


  • 2 shots of freshly made espresso or strong brewed coffee
  • 3 red hot candies
  • 2 teaspoons salted caramel
  • 2 ounces heavy cream


1. Place red hot candies in a cup and brew 2 shots of espresso using your espresso machine allowing the hot espresso to infuse with the red hot candies.
2. Allow the coffee to cool to room temperature, remove any candy that did not melt and then transfer it to a cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes.
3. Add 2 teaspoons caramel and cream to the shaker
4. Shake the mixture vigorously until well chilled and frothy.
5. Strain the mocktail into a chilled martini glass or a glass of your choice.
6. For that extra touch of indulgence, drizzle some salted caramel sauce over the top.
7. Garnish with a coffee bean or a caramel swirl if desired.

Voilà! You now have a delicious Salted Caramel Coffee Mocktail that captures the essence of the original Fireball Espresso Martini without the alcohol. Enjoy the rich coffee flavor, creamy texture, and sweet caramel notes in every sip, making it a perfect non-alcoholic alternative for any occasion.
