Lemon Drop Cocktail

Lemon Drop Martini Recipe

The Lemon Drop Martini was created back in the 80s during the vodka craze. It was apparently named after a hard candy and said to be made in the bay area of San Francisco.
Whilst technically it is a Vodka Crusta and not a Martini, it is undoubtedly a refreshing, citrusy cocktail with a balance of sweet and tart.
