If you like sweet cocktails you’ll love the Lemon Drop Martini. An essential drink, basically a lemonade reinforced with sugar, citron vodka and triple sec: all the harmony of the cocktail is played around the subtle balance between sugar and the acidity of lemon, with the sumptuous orange aroma of the triple in the background.
Vodka only serves to give alcoholic credibility to the Lemon Drop Martini, given that it doesn’t have all that flavor.
So why should we drink the Lemon Drop Martini cocktail?
Because it is a very good cocktail the result is a mixture that gently caresses the palate, in a chiaroscuro that has few equals, never boring, no matter how simple the recipe of the Lemon Drop Martini is.

That’s it, very easy, but if you like a sweet and aromatic drink, it won’t so easy to stop drinking this beauty!
