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.
