Lemon drop martinis are one of my favorite drinks in the Martini family of flavors. You can find one of the most delightful recipes for lemon drop martini in my cookbook It Begins at the Table. I created strawberry mint
Made with just seven simple ingredients and my favorite stainless steel popsicle mold, this frozen adult treat is simple to make and freezes in only four hours. Disclaimer: although they freeze well, they also melt quickly. Unlike a good lemon drop martini you sip slowly to enjoy, make sure you have a few napkins nearby because these popsicles need to
A warning: Don’t let their pretty appearance fool you. They can pack a small punch for lightweights like me, after only one popsicle. You will easily impress your martini-loving friends this summer, when you serve these frozen frozen martini on a stick. I consider them to be the perfect adult summer treat for parties, BBQ, or just a quiet evening on the deck with friends.
When entertaining, I also make a batch of my Peach Schnapps Popsicles with Frozen Raspberry for a summery-fun choice to offer my guests. Most of the time, they want to try each. Both flavors are pretty fantastic. Cheers!
