Meyer Lemon Drop Martini

Meyer Lemon Drop Martini
Adapted from Martha Stewart Living.
Serves 2

2 oz. simple syrup made with zest of 1 Meyer lemon (see below)
Juice of 2 Meyer lemons
3 oz. vodka

To make the simple syrup, combine 1 oz. water, 1 oz. sugar (measure in a cocktail jigger) and the lemon zest in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir until sugar dissolves.

In a cocktail shaker, combine a handful of ice, the lemon juice, vodka and simple syrup. Shake vigorously and strain into 2 chilled martini glasses.

I don't care what the weather is like right now~this sounds delicious to me !
We are expecting another snow event tomorrow night and this just might be on my agenda for the evening!



  1. I grew up with a Myer lemon tree and we never used them because it wasn't a 'real' lemon. If only I drank at 10. hahaha ;) This sounds so good. Now I'll have to find someone with a Myer lemon tree. xoxo
