For everyone that is hosting a little NYE soirée this year, we’ve got the perfect cocktail for you to serve! Today’s martini-cocktail is easy in preparation, doesn’t require fancy ingredients while still being glamorous. To us, anything served in a martini glass is definitely party-appropriate, especially if it comes with a sugared rim. Our Lemon-Lime Drops are the perfect mix of sweet & sour and will be loved by everyone! By the way, this is also a favorite of our parents (who love to serve it for dinner parties), and that’s where we got the recipe from.
What you’ll need:
– 3cl fresh lemons & lime juice (or just lemons)
– 3cl simple syrup
– 4cl vodka
– 2cl triple sec
– ice cubes
– sugar (for the rim)
– lemon/lime peel to garnish
Start by prepping your simple syrup – simply heat water and sugar in the microwave for the sugar to dissolve completely. Then, squeeze the juice of the lemons & limes. Prepare your glasses by making the sugared rim with a wedge of lemon and lots of sugar and adding the lemon (or lime) peel for garnish. In a cocktail shaker, combine simple syrup, lemon-lime juice, vodka, triple sec and ice cubes. Shake well, pour into glasses and serve immediately. Enjoy!
PS. this recipe tastes just as good when only made with lemons, but we’re big fans of limes, so we always like to include a few.
