Lemon Drop Martini
A sweet and tart decadent cocktail easy to make at home!
- 2 shots whipped vodka
- 1 shot limoncello
- 1/2 fresh-squeezed lemon
- simple syrup to taste
- crushed Lemon Drop candies or sugar to rim glass
Using a coffee grinder or a plastic bag and rolling pin - crush the 8-10 Lemon Drop candies and place on a small plate to rim your cocktail glass. You can also use granulated sugar instead.
Cut your lemon in half and rub it on the rim of the glass and immediately dip in the crushed candy or sugar
Squeeze the lemon half into a cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes
Add the whipped vodka, limoncello, and a splash or 2 of simple syrup into the cocktail shaker and shake, then shake some more and now shake one more time
Pour into your rimmed glass and enjoy
I like to double this recipe and then retire to the porch with my fancy thrift find silver tray carrying my shaker and cocktail glass for so much deserved quiet time!
