lemon drop martini with recipe

Have you ever sipped on a drink that made your eyes open wide with delight? Then, when you order that same drink some place else, it just didn’t compare? That happens to me a lot.  But that’s when you learn to make it at home so you can enjoy the perfect libation anytime you want.  For me, this Coconut Sugar Lemon Drop Martini is my “perfect drink”.

My friend, Ameneh, created this delightful lemon cocktail by adding the perfect amount of everything, plus a giant splash of fresh lemon juice and a dust of sweet coconut sugar on the rim.  Honestly – in my opinion this the most delicious Lemon Drop Martini you will ever put to your lips.

I will warn you though, one glass is never enough since this drink it’s just like sipping on the perfect little dessert. Once your glass is half empty, don’t be surprised if you find yourself already planning on seconds. It’s really that good. Cheers!
