Oh how we love a Lemon Drop Martini. It’s a great palate cleanser, which makes it great for the period between lunch and dinner where you just need a little bit of tart goodness. Our Lemon Drop Martini uses a nice Vodka (don’t skimp here–just trust me) and your favorite limoncello for a little extra slight sweetness and round lemony vibe. We like to think the fresh-squeezed lemon juice gives you a little extra dose of vitamin C–that’s healthy, right??
Here’s the recipe (Makes 2 Drinks):
Lemon Drop Martini
- 2 ounces premium vodka
- 2 ounces Limoncello
- 2 ounces simple syrup
- 1 ounce fresh lemon juice
- Lemon peel for garnish
Fill your cocktail shaker 3/4 of the way full with ice.
Pour the vodka, limoncello, simple syrup, and fresh limoncello into your shaker and shake….shake….shake…shake. Then shake a little bit more (until your hand gets really cold).
Pour into a martini glass rimmed with fine sugar and add a lemon peel as garnish.
