Lemon Drop Martini
What is a Lemon Drop Martini?
A Lemon Drop Martini is a zesty, sweet-and-sour cocktail made primarily from lemon juice, vodka, and triple sec. It’s known for its perfect balance of sweetness and tartness, often served with a sugared rim to complement the citrusy zing.
- 2 oz vodka
- 1 oz fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 oz triple sec or Cointreau
- 1/4 to 1/2 oz simple syrup (adjust based on your sweetness preference)
- Lemon twist or lemon wheel for garnish
- Sugar for rimming the glass (optional)
- If you prefer a sugared rim, run a lemon slice around the edge of your martini glass and dip it into sugar. Set aside.
- Add the vodka, fresh lemon juice, triple sec, and simple syrup to your Elixir Mixer.
- Whisk on the first speed until the ingredients are well combined.
- Pour the mixture into your prepared martini glass.
- Garnish with a lemon twist or lemon wheel.
Sip and enjoy!
What's the difference between a martini version and a shot version?
The ingredients are very similar, but the martini version is usually served in a larger quantity and in a martini glass, while the shot is served in a shot glass.
Can I use bottled lemon juice?
Fresh lemon juice is preferred for its bright, zesty flavor. Bottled can sometimes taste a bit flat or artificial.
How can I make it even zestier?
