Shaken, not stirred - with a twist!

Updated: May 23, 2021

My first cousin Jane and her husband Bob, who live in Durango, Colorado, tested this recipe out using our lemons!  Lemon drop martinis are a delicious twist ( pun intended!🤣) on traditional vodka martinis but slightly less alcoholic!  Make sure you have superfine sugar for the rim, and take a wedge of lemon and rim the glass with the fresh lemon so that the sugar will stick!  Pour sugar into a saucer and invert the glass to frost the rim. Can be done ahead for a crisp, sugary rim! Enjoy!
