Lemon Drop Martini

  • Lemon Drop   Sweet & Tart
  • 1 ½ oz vodka
  • ¾ oz Triple Sec
  • 2 oz fresh lemonade*
  • OR*
  • 1 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1 oz simple syrup
  • 1 oz water
  • Shake all ingredients in a mixing glass full of ice
  • Serve in a sugar rimmed cocktail glass with a lemon wedge garnish

The drink is a lemon flavored delight that is decidedly strong with a hint of sweet and a zing of fresh lemon. This drink is usually favored by the ladies. Be careful. For a twist on the original recipe…perhaps try a ‘colored sugar’ rim on your martini glass. Oprah likes these, she said so… and she garnishes hers with mint leaves. So… if that’s how Oprah does… then that is how you should do it! Cheers!
