Lemon Drop Martini

It's officially spring and this refreshing lemon cocktail is perfect for a spring evening.


  • 2 oz vodka

  • 1 oz. Cointreau, or triple sec

  • 1 oz. fresh lemon juice

  • 1 1/2 oz. simple syrup (or sub the lemon juice and simple syrup for lemonade)


  1. Chill your martini glass by filling it with ice and water

  2. Meanwhile, grab your martini shaker and fill 3/4 with ice, add vodka, Cointreau, lemon juice and simple syrup, cover and shake.

  3. Optional: Prior to pouring, create a sugar rim for your martini glass but rubbing a lemon wedge around the edge and then dredging on a plate of sugar

  4. Garnish with a lemon slice, or twist

Note #1: This is not a time for a low shelf drink, splurge for a high quality vodka- you'll thank me in the morning
