There are 23 more days until Christmas! It is time to put up the tree and decorate the house. It is also time to open another bag!
ADVENT CALENDAR | 23 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS
Today’s advent bag contains Morey Limoncello liqueur. Morey Limoncello is made from the zest of lemons, giving it a sweet lemon flavor. Not a big fan of lemonade? Skip this drink.
THE DRINK | LEMON DROP MARTINI
I am new to Limoncello. I was attracted to this liqueur because of the beautiful glass bottle. However, I am not new to a lemon drop. Lemon drops are typically a sweet, lemon-based shot commonly consumed by young women at college bars. I know this because I have consumed more than my fair share as a twenty-something. Not so many as a thirty-something. If you loved lemon drops in your youth, you are going to enjoy the grownup version: lemon drop martini.
I don’t enjoy my drinks on the strong side, so I typically add more juice than liquor. If you enjoy a stronger beverage, feel free to change the ratios.
- 1 shot of vodka
- 1 shot of Limoncello
- 1 shot of triple sec
- 3 ounces of Simply Lemonade
For the Garnish
- 1 teaspoon of decorating sugar (it has larger crystals)
- 1 lemon for garnish
Like the sugar rim? I rubbed a lemon wedge around the edge of the glass. I poured decorating sugar onto a plate. I then slid the wet rim through the sugar. After a few minutes the sugar was dried to the rim, making it easy to carry and sip without getting covered in sugar. If you are going to add a sugar rim, you must add it to the glass before adding the drink.
