pucker up

Okay, I've googled, and reckon that this sounds like the perfect Lemon Drop Martini recipe. Enjoy!

1 1/2 ounces of vodka
1/2 ounce triple sec
1 tsp superfine sugar (I think I'll use caster sugar)
3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice

Place all ingredients into a cocktail shaker and shake 40 times to allow the sugar to dissolve. Then, grab yourself a frosty cold martini glass, wipe the rim with lemon juice, then dip it in some superfine sugar. Carefully pour in the Lemon Drop Martini, then garnish with a lemon twist.

Oh my.

See, yet another reason why I really need to plant a lemon tree. 


  1. You can also use limonecello. Divine color then.

  2. Good thinking 99 - particularly as I have both vodka and limoncello already in the freezer! Plus the caster sugar in the pantry, all I need now is that lemon tree.

  3. I was just wondering if it might be a bit too sweet with limoncello and the sugar and vodka . . . hmmmm . . . you'll have to tell me.


Comments make me SO happy. Thank you for taking the time to share the love x
