Limoncello Drop Martini
The time is now to get creative with some delicious cocktails to enjoy after dinner (or while cooking)! I was first introduced to a Lemon Drop Martini at one of our local restaurants (which escapes my memory right now). To my surprise, it was so delicious! On my next visit to the same restaurant, I again ordered their signature Lemon Drop Martini only this time I was disappointed. I guess it's true, the bartender/mixologist makes all the difference. Maybe he/she was off the night of my second visit. So Teresa and I set out to make the perfect Lemon Drop Martini. Through experimentation we found adding our homemade limoncello was the key ingredient for us. If you're not inclined to try making your own limoncello, you can buy a good quality bottle from your favorite liquor store. If you're like us who love anything with lemon, then this martini is for you. Give it a try...it's delicious. Enjoy!❤️ 🍸 🤣
