Meyer Lemon Martini

"Meyer lemons, a cross between a lemon and an orange, have a sweeter, less acidic flavor than the more common lemon. If you have to use a regular lemon, add a little extra sugar to taste. For the ultimate martini, use good quality vodka and orange liqueur. I should have named this the 'come to mama' martini!"

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Two teaspoons of simple syrup can be used to sweeten the martini instead of the sugar and water. To make 1 and 1/2 cups simple syrup, bring 1 cup white sugar and 1 cup water to a boil until sugar is melted. After cooling the syrup, store it in the fridge. It will keep several weeks.

I bought a bag of Meyer lemons with this recipe in mind! I am a Grand Marnier lover, so I used that for the orange-flavored liqueur. This little citrus gem has the perfect balance of sweet to tart. This will definitely be treat throughout the week at cocktail hour! Thanks, cookin'mama!
