My husband has a well earned reputation for the cocktails he can shake-up for family and friends. This is one of my favorite flavored martinis, and is a wonderful cocktail to serve guests or to relax and enjoy yourself.
Lemon Drop Martini Cocktail
2 lemon wedges
Super fine Sugar
1/2 cup of good quality of citrus flavored vodka
1/2 cup orange liquer such as Cointreau
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 Tablespoons lemon-lime soda
1 Tablespoon sweet and sour mix
Push lemon wedge onto the rim of 1 martini glass;rotate glass to coat rim with lemon juice. Repeat with second lemon wedge and martini glass. (Note: I like to place my martini glasses in the freezer before using them). Discard lemon wedges.
Place sugar on a shallow plate. Dip rim of martini glasses into sugar. Fill cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Add remaining ingredients to cocktail shaker and shake vigorously. Strain into martini glasses.
