The perfect combination of sweet and tart, the Lemon Drop Martini is a must for any girl’s night out or cocktail party. This sweet and lemony drink can be traced back to 1970s California – more specifically to a singles bar in San Francisco called Henry Africa’s.
The bartender wanted to create a drink that would go down smoothly and tasted delicious – and so the Lemon Drop Martini was born!
The best part? You only need three ingredients (and we bet you already have all of them handy): some vodka, a lemon (preferably a sweet California Meyer lemon if possible), and a pinch of sugar.
Simply combine the vodka, lemon juice, and sugar in a cocktail shaker, add in some ice, and shake until chilled. Strain the mixture into a martini glass and garnish with a lemon twist.
Now that’s what we call Sustainable Sipping. Cheers!
