It’s 5 o’clock in 3, 2, 1…
This cocktail falls somewhere in between a Lemon Drop and a Martini. The Vermouth takes it away from the classic Lemon Drop recipe and personally I think it is too sweet to be a Martini. Make yourself a couple, and if you have a good idea for a name, let me know, I’d love to hear it!
It’s sweet, delicious and just be forewarned, it’s a little strong. Cheers!
This is how to make a Vanilla Lemon Drop Martini
INGREDIENTS makes two:
- 4 Ounces Vodka
- 4 Ounces Dry Vermouth
- 2 Ounces Simple Syrup
- 1 Lemon, Juice

-Use a vegetable peeler to remove the zest from the lemon, for garnish
-Add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice
-Shake 40-50 times, you’ll feel the cocktail shaker get dramatically colder when it’s ready
-Pour, garnish, drink
