This tart but sweet martini recipe is our play on a Lemon Drop, with fresh lime juice instead of lemon juice!



3 ounces vodka

1 ounce Triple Sec, Cointreau or Grand Marnier

1 1/2 ounces fresh lime juice

2 1/2 teaspoons super fine sugar, plus extra for sugaring the rim of the glass

Fresh lime zest and a lime twist for garnish


Rub a wedge of lime around the rim of a martini glass. Place the sugar on a shallow plate and then dip the rim of the martini glass into the sugar to coat the rim.

Add the vodka, triple sec and lime juice to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and then pour into the rimmed martini glass.

Garnish with lime wedges and serve.
