Making a Martini may look difficult, but it’s actually quite easy. My favorite variation of a Vodka Martini is the Lemon Drop Martini. Here’s how to make one.
Making A Lemon Drop Martini: Pro Tips
As you can see, it is quite easy to make a Lemon Drop Martini as long as you have the right equipment. Here are some pro tips to help you make a Lemon Drop Martini at home like a seasoned bartender.
Always Use High-Quality Fresh Ingredients
Always use premium quality vodka and freshly squeezed lemon juice when making your Lemon Drop Martini. A good quality vodka will make your cocktail smooth with no harsh aftertaste, and the fresh lemon juice will give a bright, authentic flavor to your Martini.
Chill Vodka And Glass In Advance.
Like most cocktails, a Lemon Drop Martini is best served cold. A cold glass and chilled vodka will ensure your cocktail stays cooler for longer so you can enjoy it over a longer period of time.
Double Strain The Cocktail
To prevent any pulp or shards of ice in your final drink, use both a Hawthorne Strainer and a Fine Mesh Strainer together. This is called “double-straining” and is how professional bartenders ensure a crystal-clear, impeccably smooth martini. It not only refines the texture of your cocktail but elevates its presentation.
