{Recipes}: Lemon Drop Martini

A few sips of this delish treat and you are three sheets to the wind. Wait is that the saying? What does that even mean?!

Anyway…I love citrus drinks! This will be perfect for the soon to be sunny rainy Spring days.

Lemon Drop Martini adapted from drinks mixer

Ingredients

  • 1/2 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz citrus vodka
  • 1 teaspoon baker’s sugar or ultra fine sugar
  • lemon peel for garnish

Using a zest tool make a strip of lemon peel as garnish for later. Squeeze the lemons and measure out lemon juice. Add ice, lemon juice, sugar and vodka to a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously. In a martini glass run a lemon wedge on the lip and dip in sugar to make a sugared rim. Strain drink mixture into the martini glass and garnish. Sip and enjoy!

What is one of your favorite cocktails? Mine is a Moscow Mule, Lemon Drop, Vodka Gimlet or a bottle of champagne.

Cheers!
