How to Make a Lemon Drop Martini?
Making this martini is very easy. Prepping the martini glass is the most difficult part, and even that is pretty basic compared to other drinks.
- Triple Sec
- Simple Syrup
- Lemon Juice
- White Sugar
Begin making this delicious martini by taking a chilled martini glass and coat the rim with lemon juice by running a lemon wedge around it. Next, take a small plate and spread the sugar on it. Dip the martini glass rim in the sugar to coat it. Set aside until the martini is ready to pour.
After placing ice in your shaker cup, add in the vodka, triple sec, simple syrup, and lemon juice. Shake the mixture until well blended and chilled.
Strain the lemon drop mix into your prepped martini glass and garnish with a lemon peel.
