How many of you are actually trying to say "Lemonberry Martini" three times? How many of you are lying?!
I have to admit that it's been a little while since I've had a martini. Last one I had was Poolside, which you can read about here.
The Lemonberry Martini is special because it has a remarkable coral color and the unmistakable bite of lemon that I adore! LA's lemon festival is one of the highlights for me after Spring and into Summer.
• 2 oz. Cranberry juice
• 1 oz. Citron vodka
• 1 oz. Elderflower liqueur
Pour cranberry juice, elderflower liqueur, and citron vodka into a cocktail shaker with ice. Juice one lemon and add 1 ounce of lemon juice into the shaker (add a little less if you want your drink to be a little less tart). Give your cocktail a good shake and pour into a martini glass.
Now let's talk about glasses. Make sure they are glass, coup style and clean. I can't stand to drink from a dirty glass! Enjoy your spirits!
