This is a DESSERT martini...rich, sweet, creamy, tangy....like a lemon creamsicle for adults. Made with my homemade limoncello, it is sweet, intense, creamy. Be sure to sip this one. It packs a punch. I do recommend rimming the martini glass with a lemon for that first pure citrus zing, adding the sugar is optional. Yum.
Prep Time: 5 minutes Yield: One martini
1 1/2 ounce vodka
1 1/2 ounce limoncello
1/2 ounce simple syrup (I use my ginger simple syrup)
juice of 1/2 lemon
2 teaspoons heavy cream
optional garnish; berries, lemon twists (the drink pictured above has a blackberry garnish)
Rim a martini glass with lemon juice.
In an ice-filled martini shaker, add the vodka, limoncello, simple syrup, and lemon juice. Shake for 15-20 seconds. Add cream, and shake an additional few seconds. Strain into a martini glass. Add in garnish, as desired.
