Lemon Drop Martini, mixed and ready to drink.

Drink Ingredients:

  • 3/4 fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 triple sec
  • 1 house vodka (or lemon flavored vodka)
  • sugar (rim garnish)
  • lemon cartwheel (garnish)

Mixing Method: Shake

  1. Rim a cocktail glass with berry sugar.
  2. Scoop a mixing glass 3/4 full with ice.
  3. Add all ingredients except the garnish.
  4. Cover with shaker cap and shake briefly.
  5. Strain into the sugar rimmed cocktail glass.
  6. Garnish with a lemon cartwheel or slice.

Mixology Notes:

Most recipes for this drink use lemon flavored vodka. If you happen have it, use it in place of the regular vodka. Otherwise, use 1-3 drops of pure organic lemon extract, for an intense, fresh flavor, that really shines.
