lemon drop martini with recipe

If you’ve ever sipped on a drink that made your eyes open wide with delight, then you will love this coconut sugar lemon drop martini. My friend, Ameneh, created this delightful lemon cocktail by adding the perfect amount of Lemoncello, vodka, and a giant splash of fresh lemon juice.  She took it to another level with the addition of a sweet coconut sugar rim.  Every sip creates the perfect balance of slightly sweet and perfectly sour.

I will warn you though, one glass is never enough. This drink is like sipping on the perfect little dessert. Once your glass is half empty, you may find yourself planning a second round. It’s really that good. Cheers!
