Sunday Sunday: a Raspberry Lemon Drop Martini

Raspberry Lemon Drop MartiniIts been a long Sunday afternoon in October, from a full breakfast at the local Irish Pub to Madtini Lab planning meetings to Halloween cocktail testing, not to mention the finale of Mad Men Season 4 coming up tonight. It was sheer luck that I was looking at my Twitter stream when one of our Madtini friends, Jennifer (@RealSweets) from LA had posted pictures of a couple of drinks she had enjoyed this weekend.

The one that caught our eye was a picture of the Raspberry Lemon Drop Martini. Our Madtini Lab intern quickly found a recipe online and we were in business. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 3 oz vodka
  • 1 oz Chambord
  • 4 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp sugar

Preparation:

Wet the rim of a chilled cocktail glass with a lemon. Cover the rim of the cocktail glass by turning it sugar laid out in a small shallow plate. Combine the vodka, lemon juice and sugar in a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice cubes. Shake, then strain into the chilled cocktail glass. Add the Chambord slowly by pouring it over an upturned spoon.
