Lemon Drop Martini

As the sun stays out longer, and you can feel the heat radiating from your body, I believe our inner child starts to thrive. Remembering the long summer nights with bare feet, I can't help but think of our countless lemonade stands. Although, as an adult, lemonade has never truly left my side. There is still nothing better than sitting in the shade on a sunny day, sipping lemonade with a good book. This drink brings back all those heart warming memories, and maybe spices them up a bit.

  • 1 tbs. lemon juice
  • 1/8 cup vodka
  • 1 tsp. sugar syrup

To start off, I cannot emphasize enough the importance of real lemon juice. A little extra pulp makes all the difference. You can buy the sugar syrup, but it is easy to make as well. To make the sugar syrup combine 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of water in a sauce pan over medium heat and stir until completely dissolved. Once it has cooled down feel free to keep the extra for later. 

Drink responsibly. Not for those under the age of 21.
