Limon Drop Martini a refreshing blend of tart and sweet, the perfect Spring drink.
*I posted this recipe originally on White Lights on Wednesday three years ago*
For Happy Hour Friday I’m bringing you my favorite drink of all time, Limon Drop Martini.
My husband and I frequent a popular Mexican restaurant(Red Iguana) that has the best food and the most delicious Limon Drop Martini. One sip and I knew that I needed to recreate this drink. That’s one of the side effects of being a food blogger, the need to analyze and recreate anything and everything you eat in a restaurant. This can be quite annoying to the person dining with me since I pepper them with questions about what they think is in the food and then I’m furiously writing down everything I can think of, right in the middle of dinner. I try not to do that around new people lest they think I’m weird. Ahem…
Anyway…back to this drink. If you love lemons then this will soon be your favorite drink. I love the sweetness of the sugar mixed in with the sourness of the lemon juice. The perfect balance of sweet and sour on your taste buds. This is the perfect drink for an outdoor party or a fun, festive bridal shower.
The first time we made this we used vodka instead of rum, nope not right. I tried it with bottled lemon juice instead of fresh lemons, definitely don’t do that. For this drink you really want to get the Bacardi Limon Rum. It makes the entire drink.
If you like apples then you will like my Appletini.
