This Tasty Lemon Drop Martini is a vodka based cocktail that has a lemony, sweet and sour flavor! The perfect cocktail to enjoy any night of the week!
If you take a scroll through my blog, you’ll likely find several cocktail recipes. Both my hubby and I enjoy trying new drink concoctions and discovering new favorites.
My hubby enjoys drinks on the rocks, sometimes just a simple Scotch or whiskey, Old Fashioned, etc. I am the complete opposite. The sweeter the drink, the more I love it. If I can taste the alcohol, chances are, it won’t be a favorite of mine. I refer to my favorites as “girly drinks”, haha!
A few days ago, I found some fresh lemons in my produce bin I had forgotten about. My original plan was to make some lemon bread with them, but since I wasn’t in the baking mood….I went the martini route instead. Makes sense, right?
After about 5-10 minutes of playing around with the ingredients in this and trying to get it just right….this Tasty Lemon Drop Martini came about and was a huge hit.
Not only did it have the perfect amount of lemon, but it wasn’t overly tart/sour. Even my hubby, who typically doesn’t enjoy sweet drinks, loved this!
If you’re having friends over, be sure to prepare some of these as they’ll be the hit of the party! Perhaps for Happy Hour? After a long day of work? Or simply enjoy any night of the week as a tasty, adult treat!
Forget going to the bars and spending too much on drinks. This Lemon Drop Martini is just as good as going out and only a fraction of the cost!
