Lemon Drop Martini
Friday night deserves a cocktail – a Lemon Drop Martini with extra love. Although these days Friday could be Tuesday far as I know. Stay-at-home orders have me feeling like I’m in the movie, Groundhog Day, which is even more reason for a special cocktail!
Every few years I make a batch of Meyer Lemon Limoncello. Happy to include the recipe if you comment me. I pull out my much loved liquor from the freezer for this martini and adds an amazing kiss of flavor.
