Cocktails | Lemon Drop with Mint Martini (a.k.a. The World's Best Lemon Drop Martini)

Posted on March 24, 2011

I love this one! The taste is great. The mint is an awesome touch. And I like the fact that it makes two drinks. Yum!

Yield: 2 servings

lemon drop with mint martini


3 jiggers premium vodka

3 jiggers freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 jigger Cointreau (or Grand Marnier)

1/2 to 1 jigger simple syrup (vary according to taste)

2 to 4 fresh mint leaves plus extra for garnish



Moisten the rims of two martini glasses with lemon juice and dip in sugar to coat.

Combine ingredients, mint leaves and a generous amount of ice cubes in a martini shaker.

Shake until very cold and strain into sugar rimmed glasses.

Garnish with lemon twists and/or whole fresh mint leaves.

Note: I used 1 jigger simple syrup and 4 mint leaves.
