Lemonade Stand Martini

on March 26, 2010

Lemonade isn’t just for summertime anymore! And there is nothing more refreshing than this delicious lemony treat to sip and pretend you are on a tropical isle somewhere. Close your eyes while sipping and you will be transported to the coast of Italy. This is our new favorite martini and I think you will all love it as well. So simple to make and after that first sip you will be hooked. Just be careful because these may go down very smooth but they pack a hidden kick. The key ingredient is limoncello. Limoncello can have an alcohol content of anywhere between 25%-35%! Not too shabby huh! So whip up a batch this weekend and forget the cold weather, forget work, forget the kids…Relax and enjoy! The recipe is for one drink so if you have four people just multiply the ingredients by four and so on.

INGREDIENTS:

1 ounce limoncello (your choice, we like Pallini)

1 ounce vodka (your choice)

1 ounce simple syrup

1 ounce fresh lemon juice (fresh makes it soooo much better)

DIRECTIONS:

1. Fill a cocktail shaker about ΒΌ-1/3 full with ice.

2. Add ingredients to shaker and shake!

3. Pour into chilled martini glass. You can rim the glass with colored sugar if you like. Add a slice of lemon to glass.

4. Sit back and enjoy!
