Lemon Drop Martini

About the Recipe

The Lemon Drop Martini is a classic cocktail with a zesty twist, featuring Big Storm Lemon Vodka for an extra citrus punch. This drink blends the tartness of fresh lemon juice with the smoothness of the vodka, softened by a touch of simple syrup for a perfectly balanced sweet-and-sour experience. Served in a sugar-rimmed martini glass and garnished with a lemon twist, it's not only delicious but also visually appealing—a sophisticated choice for any cocktail hour.

Ingredients

  • 3 oz Big Storm Lemon Vodka

  • 1 oz fresh lemon juice

  • 0.5 oz simple syrup

  • Ice

  • Sugar (for rimming the glass)

  • Lemon twist (for garnish)

Preparation

  1. Prepare Glass: Rim a martini glass with sugar. To do this, rub a lemon slice around the edge of the glass and then dip it into sugar, ensuring an even coat.

  2. Mix Ingredients: In a cocktail shaker, combine Big Storm Lemon Vodka, fresh lemon juice, and simple syrup. Fill the shaker with ice.

  3. Shake: Shake the mixture vigorously for about 15-20 seconds. The goal is to chill the cocktail thoroughly and mix the ingredients well.

  4. Strain: Strain the mixture into the prepared martini glass.

  5. Garnish and Serve: Garnish with a lemon twist. To make a lemon twist, take a thin slice of lemon peel and twist it over the glass to release the oils, then drop it into the drink.
