SIPS :: Lemon Drop Martinis

      Hey . . .it's Cineca! 
I LOVE Darcy Miller from Martha Stewart Weddings, and I couldn't have been more excited when Laura had the chance to chat with her last week.
{Don't miss Laura's interview with Darcy...}

Darcy debuted her new party line, Summer Daisy Party, this week on OpenSky.
As I browsed through the bright & fun Daisy themed goodies...I found myself thinking,
"Self, a refreshing, lemony cocktail would pair perfectly with this party!"

This delicious Lemon Drop Martini adds the perfect adult kick to such an adorable
Summer party! Pour...Enjoy...Repeat!

lemon drop cocktail, vodka, triple sec, sugar, lemon juice, martini

1 1/2 oz vodka (I prefer Grey Goose or Skyy)
1/2 oz Triple Sec
1 tsp sugar 
3/4 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice (reserve lemon for garnish)
Ice cubes
Sugar to rim glass

Fill a shaker with ice
Add vodka, triple sec, sugar and lemon juice
Shake well to make sure sugar is blended.
Pour strained liquor into a sugar-rimmed martini glass
Garnish with a twisted peel of lemon.

*To create a sugar-rimmed glass, take a lemon wedge and rub the drinking surface of the glass so it is barely moist. Dip the edge of the glass into sugar
