Sydney and I are addicted to lemons; we can peel a lemon like an orange, segment the fragrant fruit, and eat the segments (my dentist has been cautioning that the enamel could be in danger). Rather than given up the fruit, we incorporated the bright lemon into various desserts and we squeeze the juice from the lemons. We have been drinking a lemon martini to cool down and relax during the hot days, however I seem to always want to have another. The martini has a secret punch that keeps you wanting more.
The Lemon martini is ridiculously simple, though guest will never know.
- 56 gram/ 2 0unce Citron Vodka
- 38 grams/ 1 ounce limoncello
- Freshly Squeezed lemonade, cold
- 1- jigger
- 1- shaker
- 1-double jigger
- Lemon, for garnish
- sugar, for rimming
Prepare your mise em place.
Fill the shake with ice, add the citron vodka and add the Limoncello. Fill the shaker with the freshly squeezed lemonade 1/4 up to the top of the shaker. Shake the shaker for 3 minutes. Rim the martini glass with sugar. Garnish with a lemon wedge, lemon swirl, and optional a few mint leaves.
It’s so hot today here im Portugal, I’d gladly drink one of those vodka’s. Nice post.
Thank you, I hope the weather warms-up!
