"Meyer lemons, a cross between a lemon and an orange, have a sweeter, less acidic flavor than the more common lemon. If you have to use a regular lemon, add a little extra sugar to taste. For the ultimate martini, use good quality vodka and orange liqueur. I should have named this the 'come to mama' martini!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I bought a bag of Meyer lemons with this recipe in mind! I am a Grand Marnier lover, so I used that for the orange-flavored liqueur. This little citrus gem has the perfect balance of sweet to tart. This will definitely be treat throughout the week at cocktail hour! Thanks, cookin'mama!
With a bumper crop or meyer lemons, I was so pleased to find this little gem. I did only use one shot of vodka cuz I am a whimp when it comes to octane :)Delicious!!!! Hmmmmm.....maybe I should give away all those lemons LOL
Holy smokes!! This is a great drink and one "does it"...the hubs and I are big fans!
I have been searching for a good lemon martini recipe and this is it. So easy to make and is not too tart. Can't wait to try it with grand marnier as Cointreau is all I had.
Yummy! I'm not much of a martini-lover, but do love Meyer lemon, so I thought I'd give it a try. It's very strong, but has an excellent flavor. Had to run to the computer and type this review before I finished the first glass, because I knew I wouldn't be able to after finishing the drink! Good and strong!
Lightly boil the sugar water to make simple syrup. :)
Did what other said and added a packet of sugar. It was excellent!
So good and so strong! Just the way I like it!
