"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!"

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Combine 2 teaspoons sugar and warm water in a cocktail shaker; stir to dissolve sugar. Pour Meyer lemon juice, lemon peels, vodka, and orange liqueur into the shaker; add ice. Cover and shake vigorously.
  2. Remove a lemon peel from the shaker and wipe the rim of a martini glass with the peel. Dip the rim of the glass in 1 teaspoon sugar, or as needed. Strain martini into prepared glass.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Two teaspoons of simple syrup can be used to sweeten the martini instead of the sugar and water. To make 1 and 1/2 cups simple syrup, bring 1 cup white sugar and 1 cup water to a boil until sugar is melted. After cooling the syrup, store it in the fridge. It will keep several weeks.
