Lemon Drop Martinis

14 Dec

When I sent out the Pomegranate Martini post yesterday, a couple of folks asked for the Lemon Drop Martini recipe, so here you go! We have a Meyer Lemon tree and when the fruit is in season this is a regular (at least once a week) treat at Eddie’s Bar.

1 1/2 ounces vodka
1/2 ounce Triple Sec
1 teaspoon superfine sugar
3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
4 -5 ice cubes
Small plate of superfine sugar, for the martini glass rim
Lemon twist

  1. Chill martini glasses in freezer for at least 10 minutes prior to serving.
  2. Place Vodka, Triple Sec, lemon juice and sugar into a cocktail shaker with 4-5 ice cubes and shake vigorously for 30 seconds to 1 minute, until shaker is icy.
  3. Run the lemon twist around the edge of the chilled martini glass and dip in a small amount of superfine sugar for a coated rim.
  4. Pour the strained martini into the chilled glasses and serve.
