I started the week with a lemon in my water and ending it with a lemon in my drink! Spring is so close (I can't see you snow) and the smell of fresh cut lemons just reminds me of that fact.
It's no secret that I love fancy. Add fancy to a drink and I'm all over it! For today's Martini Moment, I'm showing you how to fancy up your drink and make a fast and easy twist. Along with a super delicious Lemon Drop recipe. Because this is how a Friday should be celebrated. With a fancy drink in hand.
Step 1: Get a lemon. See? Easy already.
Step 2: Cut off the ends of the lemon.
So it looks like this:
Step 3: Using a bar spoon or knife (I ended up using both) hollow out the lemon.
Step 4: Roll up your lemon skin. Keep in mind some are more thick than others.
Step 5: Cut your rolled lemon peel into whatever size twist you want.
Fill a shaker about half with ice, throw everything in minus the rim sugar. Shake until your teaspoon of sugar is dissolved. Before pouring take a lemon around your rim and dip in sugar. Then pour in your shaker of goodness. Add your twist and sip!
Quick tip: if you like a sweeter drink add more sugar and a little less lemon juice.
Cheers, and have a fabulous weekend!
