Lemon Drop Martini

Some people make Christmas Cookies…. I like to experiment with cocktails during the Holidays!  There are a billion recipes out there claiming to be the perfect Lemon Drop Martini recipe, and every restaurant seems to put their own twist on it.  My twist, well, I like mine a bit on the strong and tart side so I will warn you, this is not for the weak!  I also use a sugar substitute in place of a simple syrup or real sugar. (It makes me feel better about having 2, lol!) 

My very favorite Lemon Drop Martini I have had is a killer happy hour special at Twigs Martini Bistro.  This doesn’t quite measure up to the real thing, but when I need a Lemony fix at home, this will do it every time!
