Taking inspiration from sweets is this Lemon Drop Martini recipe put together by lifestyle blog Homemade Hooplah that offers a sophisticated and adult-appropriate way to enjoy the confectionary. The drink contains much sweeter ingredients than a traditional martini, making it much easier for first timers to enjoy.
The candied beverage contains a mixture of sweet and tart flavors that come together to recreate the taste of a Lemon Drop bonbon. This includes mixing vodka with a sweet and sour mix, sparkling limoncello soda and fresh lemon juice. The drink is served in a martini glass that is rimmed in granulated sugar and garnished with a slice of lemon.
The drink showcases how nostalgic candy flavors can be rendered upscale for more older audiences.
