If you wish you could wrap your fingers around a lemon dreamsicle, this is a martini for you! It’s not quite as tart as a lemon drop, not as sweet as limoncello and the cream is the perfect addition.
Lemon Dream Martini
1.5 ounces Lemon Vodka
1.5 ounces Limoncello
3 ounces of half and half or cream
1-2 teaspoons of frozen lemonade concentrate
Lemon Drop rimming sugar or crushed lemon drop candies
Fresh Sliced Lemons
Slice lemons and use one to rim top of martini glass, then dip in lemon drop rimming sugar. Place in freezer. In cocktail shaker, add generous amount of ice. I fill mine 1/2 to 3/4 of the way with fresh ice. Add 1-2 heaping spoons of frozen lemonade concentrate, limoncello, vodka and cream. Cover. Shake until frost begins to form on outside of shaker. Pour into chilled glass. Garnish with a fresh lemon slice. I like to give mine a squeeze before floating the lemon on top. Enjoy!
If you want this more tart, squeeze in more lemon juice. Control the sweetness by adding or subtracting lemonade concentrate or limoncello. Want a stronger cocktail? Cut back on cream or half and half. Need a lighter version? Use 2% or whole milk instead of cream.
I’d love to hear what you think of this cocktail! I’m also completely open to better name suggestions, drop me a comment!
