Lemon Drop Martini


         This might be my all-time favorite photo of mine. It's classy, chic and amazingly
         delicious. Break out the shaker and enjoy!

                                                      Lemon Drop Martini

         1 1/2  oz good quality vodka
         1/2 oz triple sec
         1 tsp. super fine sugar
         3/4 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice- or more depending on taste

         Mix vodka, triple sec, sugar and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker half filled with
         ice cubes. Shake well to make sure sugar is blended. Pour into a sugar-rimmed
         martini glass and garnish with a twisted lemon peel.

  24. An all-time favorite photo of one of my all-time favorite drinks! :-) I thought of you the other night Val when I made my own little cocktail concoction...I used San Peligrino Orange flavored sparkling water and a splash of gin with a squeeze of lime and it was delish. Amazing what you can come up with when you are desperate enough, huh? LOL!
