Lemon Martini

This is my all time favorite cocktail!  It’s sour and fruity with a kick.  I usually double the recipe to make two at a time.

For this recipe you’ll need:

  • 1 ounce vodka (chilled is best)
  • 1 ounce lemon juice
  • 2 ounces limoncello (homemade of course)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar or sugar syrup
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves (or substitute fresh basil leaves)
  • ice

Muddle the mint and sugar in a cocktail shaker.  Add all of the remaining ingredient except the ice.  Stir and taste.  Add more sugar if needed.

Add the ice and shake.  Strain into a martini glass and serve immediately.
