Recipe by cookin'mama
"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!"

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
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.
