If you’re looking for a refreshing drink this summer, consider a lemon drop martini. It is the perfect sweet end to your day. There are so many lemon drop martinis out there since its popularity in the 70s. To this day, the lemon drop martini remains one of the best options for parties and gatherings.

Women love lemon drop martinis and even Oprah herself is a great fan of this cool drink. Create a great cocktail by using ingredients that include 0.5 oz triple sec or orange liquor, 1.5 oz vodka, 0.75 oz freshly squeezed lemon, twisted lemon peel and 0.5 oz simple syrup. Create the drink by chilling a glass with water and ice, fill shaker with ice then pour triple sec or orange liquor and vodka. Pour the simple syrup and lemon juice and shake it. Strain the cocktail into the chilled glass, twist a lemon peel and place on the glass rim. You may also use flavored vodka such as berry based flavor or citron to add a great twist to your lemon drop martini.

Another way to make a lemon drop martini is to use ½ ounce Triple Sec, 1 ½-ounce vodka, ¾ ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice, 1 tsp fine sugar, superfine sugar for dipping and twisted lemon peel. Combine triple sec, vodka, lemon juice and sugar in a cocktail shaker that is half-filled with ice and shake thoroughly. Strain to a sugar-rimmed martini glass, then garnish with a twisted peel of lemon.
