What kind of Lemon Drop Martinis have you tried? I like mine very simple and fresh. The key is to use fresh lemons. I usually have these ingredients on hand so this is a super easy drink to make!
Do you make your own simple syrup? It’s so easy. Just take 1 cup of granulated white sugar and 1 cup of water and boil until the sugar is dissolved.
I like to make a double batch of simple syrup and store it in a mason jar for up to 1 month. If you add a tablespoon of vodka, it will last up to 3 months. I also like to store fresh squeezed lemon juice. Lemon juice will stay fresh for about 3-4 days. If mason jars are too big for you, try these glass bottles. My family uses them every day to chill water in the fridge!
To make it last a few months, freeze in ice cube trays. I looove these trays that are deep and square shaped.
And if it is extra hot out like it is for me today, add one of these slow melting round ice balls!
