Lemon Drop Martini
A perfectly tart martini made with fresh squeezed homemade lemonade and Absolut Citron vodka.
+ extra for sugar rim
Mix sugar and 1 cup of water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk and heat until sugar is dissolved to make a simply syrup, about 8 minutes.
Meanwhile, squeeze lemons (8 or more depending on size- you’re looking for about 1.5 cups of lemon juice). Mix lemon juice with 8 cups of water.
When simple syrup is cooled, mix with lemon juice and water.
Sprinkle sugar on a plate. Run a lemon wedge around the rim of your glass, then dip in sugar.
Mix vodka and 1 cup lemonade in shaker with ice; strain into glass. Garnish with lemon wedge if desired.
