But, we just received a basket full of just picked Meyer Lemons and so this is our first try at the Lemon Drop.
|Meyer Lemon Drop Martini|
8 ounces fresh squeezed Meyer lemons
4 ounces vodka (chilled)
3 Tablespoons simple syrup
2 Tablespoons sugar
lemon peel for garnish
to make simple syrup: In a saucepan combine 1/4 cup of water with 1/4 cup of sugar, heat until sugar is dissolved. Set aside to cool.
Take two chilled martini glasses out of the freezer. Run a lemon slice around the rim and dip into sugar.
In a cocktail shaker, pour in lemon juice, vodka and simple syrup. Fill with ice cubes and shake. Strain and pour into prepared glasses. Top with lemon peel and serve.
