Cello Lemondrop

Cello Lemondrop
The Recipe
  • 2 ounces limoncello
  • 1 ounce vodka
  • ½ ounce fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • ice enough to fill cocktail shaker ⅔ up
  • lemon slice
  • ¼ cup sugar for rim

Instructions

Pour a thin layer of sugar onto a small plate ( just larger than the rim of your martini glass.) I use a bread plate and about ¼ cup of sugar. Prepare martini glass by lightly rubbing the rim with the fleshy wet part of a cut lemon to dampen it, then dip the moistened rim of the glass into the sugar, gently shaking off any excess. Combine all ingredients except for sugar in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously. Strain into the prepared martini glass. Garnish with a slice of lemon and serve immediately.
