From the BarrelGeneralRecipesLemon Drop Martini Recipe

January 7, 2021by Grapes and Grains

Oh how we love a Lemon Drop Martini. It’s a great palate cleanser, which makes it great for the period between lunch and dinner where you just need a little bit of tart goodness. Our Lemon Drop Martini uses a nice Vodka (don’t skimp here–just trust me) and your favorite limoncello for a little extra slight sweetness and round lemony vibe.  We like to think the fresh-squeezed lemon juice gives you a little extra dose of vitamin C–that’s healthy, right??

Here’s the recipe (Makes 2 Drinks):

Lemon Drop Martini
  • 2 ounces premium vodka
  • 2 ounces Limoncello
  • 2 ounces simple syrup
  • 1 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • Lemon peel for garnish

Fill your cocktail shaker 3/4 of the way full with ice.

Pour the vodka, limoncello, simple syrup, and fresh limoncello into your shaker and shake….shake….shake…shake. Then shake a little bit more (until your hand gets really cold).

Pour into a martini glass rimmed with fine sugar and add a lemon peel as garnish.
