Cocktails | Lemon Drop Martini

Revised February 12, 2012

I think we came up with a winning formula! Refreshingly lemony, yet not too sweet. I really like using Meyer lemons.

Yield: 1 serving

lemon drop martini


1 1/2 ounces lemon infused vodka

1/4 ounce Cointreau

1 ounce simple syrup

3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice

superfine sugar for glass



Chill martini glass in freezer. Run lemon slice around rim of glass, then dip into sugar.

Fill cocktail shaker about 1/3 full with ice. Add vodka, Cointreau, simple syrup and lemon juice. Shake about 30 seconds, strain into glass and serve.
