While in the previous century, a classic Martini is strictly by-the-book a gin cocktail made with Martini & Rossi Dry Vermouth, today it simply means anything served in a martini glass that does not contain soda (like a highball). Its still a stronger drink, mostly alcohol, no matter how much you dumb it down with fruit juice and mixers, its going to pack a punch. So here is how you make a Lemon Drop Martini aka Lemontini
Lemontini or Lemon Drop
- 5oml Vodka
- 25ml Fresh Lemon Juice
- 15ml Limoncello
Pour all ingredients into a shaker with ice. Shake hard for 45 seconds, pour into a martini glass which has the rim frosted with sugar (simply rub the rim with fresh lemon and dip in sugar). Serve straight up with lemon wedge garnish.
