The Lemon Martini is made in the style of a daiquiri, but with the ratio of Vodka spirit to fresh lemon juice at 5:1 rather than at 2:1. When made in this style, the quality of the Vodka becomes imperative to the quality of the cocktail.
2 1/2 oz Premium Vodka
1/2 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
1/4 tsp Sugar Syrup
Add the first three ingredients into a metal shaker with ice
Shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker frosts.
Strain into a nice cocktail glass
Garnish (if desired) with a ring of lemon peel
And of course enjoy responsibly!
