Description

Here’s the best lemon drop martini you’ll have! It’s zesty and refreshing, sweet tart with a crunchy sugar rim.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/2 ounces* citron vodka or vodka
  • 1/2 ounce Cointreau or triple sec
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • Superfine sugar, for the rim (or substitute granulated)
  • For the garnish: Lemon twist or lemon wheel

Instructions

  1. Cut a notch in a lemon wedge, then run the lemon around the rim of a martini glass. Dip the edge of the rim into a plate of superfine sugar.
  2. Make the lemon twist garnish.
  3. Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker, fill it with ice, and shake until cold.
  4. Strain the liquid into the glass with the sugared rim. Garnish with the lemon twist.

Notes

*To convert to tablespoons, 1 ounce = 2 tablespoons

**To achieve a yellow color for this drink, use maple syrup as the sweetener or use citron vodka. With simple syrup and standard vodka, the drink is clear in color.
