- 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
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.
