🤤 mmmmm

The lemon drop martini is my favorite boozy beverage. Especially, if it is made on the sweet side. I was lucky to enjoy this one by a cozy fire. The flames lent this whole scene a warm orange glow.

What exactly is a lemon drop?

A lemon drop is a type of martini with vodka as its base (though limoncello can also be used). The drink is made with vodka, triple sec (or Cointreau), fresh lemon juice and simple syrup. The ingredients are muddled, shaken and chilled with ice in cocktail shaker, then strained into a martini glass. The best are presented with a sugared rim. 😍

So freaking delicious! 🍋

According to liquor.com, the beverage was first invented by San Francisco bartender Norman Jay Hobday sometime in the 1970’s. They can be made more on the sweet side or more on the tart side (or a perfectly balanced combination of both). I always enjoy mine sweet!

Have an awesome weekend friends!

With Mrs W due to drop anytime soon, I've been "dry" since before Christmas (just in case), so have a drink or 3 for me. 😉

This will get that baby to drop. 😂

Not a mixed drink fan but lemon martini sounds ookay

They are great. If you are anti froofy drinks you can have them as a shot without the sugared rum.

CHEERS to you, my sweet [email protected] and a 🍸toast🍸 to a beautiful life!
Take care 🥰🌺🤙 and a ton of hugs🤗🤗🤗! Have a lovely weekend!

Cheers! 🥂

Gotta say, that sounds really good!
