Compliments Of Oprah
Oprah loves martinis and this is one of her favorites. Why, she even served it at the infamous Legends Ball.
Become a legend in time when you present a batch of this citrusy-sweet-salute to your family and friends. Mmmm! Mmmm! Better have lots of lemons on hand as you’ll be making more!
Best of all, you can fully use the entire lemon by also making and bottling your very own homemade limoncello.
6 Lemons | Juice ‘em 4 Tablespoons | Sugar 6 | Fresh Mint Leaves 4 | Shots Vodka Ice | In a Martini Shaker 1 | Sugar-Rimmed Martini Glass
1. Mix lemon juice, sugar and vodka in a martini shaker filled with ice.
2. Shake well and pour into a sugar-rimmed martini glass. Tip: Moisten the rim of the glass with a lemon wedge and dip in Lemon Drop Cocktail Sugar – especially tasty.
