The Lemon Drop Martini goes back to a place in San Francisco in a bar named Henry Africa’s in the 1970s. After that, the drink has turned into one of the most popular martini recipes in many bars and restaurants around the world. While there are so many recipe variations of the Lemon Drop Martini, the main element of this popular drink makes creating it fun and easy.

Try this recipe and enjoy a wonderful cocktail with your family and friends. Prepare simple syrup, citrus vodka, two small bowls, sugar, ice, knife, cutting board, lemons, martini shells, Triple Sec, measuring cup and cocktail shaker. Put ¼ cup of sugar into a bowl then squeeze ½-ounce lemon juice in another bowl. Get the martin shell and dip to the bowl of lemon juice first, then dip to the sugar bowl to create a sugar rim. Do this based on the number of people you will serve and then set aside.

Next step is to fill the whole cocktail shaker with ice, mix 1 ½ ounce of citrus vodka, ¾-ounce simple syrup, ¾ ounce Triple Sec and ½ ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice in the shaker. Shake for thirty seconds vigorously, then taste the ingredients in the shaker and add ½ ounce of citrus vodka for a stronger drink or add ½ ounce of simply syrup for a sweeter drink. Pour contents of the shaker into the sugar-rimmed martini shell. Cut the lemon in half and lay half of it on the cutting board then cut small sections starting at the navel at least two meters in width. Make lemon slices according to the number of guests. Put a tiny incision on the center of the lemon garnish, place the lemon slice on the rim of the martini shell then serve.
