Oprah’s Lemon Drop Martini~ 3 oz of your favorite vodka 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice 2 TBSP of sugar, and more for the rim 4 mint leaves, torn Take your cocktail shaker and combine all the ingredients with ice and shake. Take a chilled martini glass and rub a lemon wedge around the edge and rim with sugar. I use a mint leaf for garnish, you can also curl some lemon rind. This recipe will make one drink.
This lemon drop martini is my version of heaven. Simple to prepare and lemony perfection to drink. Try my lemon sugar recipe on the rim - it is excellent! You can make these a few at a time or mix up as a big batch cocktail for a party. Perfect for bridal showers, Easter brunch, or summer BBQs.
