I enjoy Sandra Lee and her cocktails and this one's no exception. The sweetness of the vanilla complemented the lemon wonderfully. I use Stirrings rimmers and mixers but had no blueberries in the house, tsk, tsk. TFS a good martini with us. Made for the March Beverage Tag.
Okay, I think I give up on vanilla vodka...it overpowers everything! I even flipped this and used 1oz vanilla vodka and 2 oz of limoncello and a lot more than a dash of diet 7-up. I garnished it with frozen blueberries. I think I'll try it again with regular vodka as Mommy Diva recommended in the Went to the market game...or perhaps x-rated fusion? Hmm. **Update: I made this again with 2oz x-rated fusion and 1 oz limoncello and berry sparkling water which makes it a totally different drink but one I really enjoyed. :wink:
This is light and crisp tasting. However, I did have to add more than a "splash" of Sprite ;) Thanks again, Mommy Diva, for another great recipe for Cocktails @ 5!
Yum! The limoncello was so good with the vanilla vodka. I used Mountain Dew and I think I will stick to the recommended sprite or 7 up next time. Thanks Mommy Diva!
This was yummy. DH thought it tasted of vodka, so for his second one I added some cream to the shaker and omitted the Sprite. I liked it just as written! Thanks Mommy Diva!
Very good martini. I used Absolut vanilla vodka, love the limoncello very fresh lemon taste. Ive made this twice now once as a martini and once just over ice. I prefer it over ice. Love the blueberries with this drink. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
I really enjoyed this! I love lemon so I made it with equal parts limoncello and vanilla vodka (I used Absolut Vanilla). I also used probably 1 part Sprite. Had a lovely light yellow color and was perfect for our first dinner outside on the deck of the year. Thanks Mommy Diva!
We did a 3 to 2 ratio of vanilla vodka to limoncello and it tasted like lemon chiffon. My new favorite drink!
I had this at a dinner party tonight hoping it would be a nice alternative to a standard Lemon Drop Martini. Maybe because the standard is one of our favs, none of us could get past the vanilla flavoring. We did not enjoy it but can see why someone who really likes vanilla might. On to the next Martini recipe......
I made these for a group of friends and we all loved it! I used Limoncello (Lemoncello, Limoncella) - FABULOUS! Who would have thought that limoncello would go so well with vanilla vodka! Thanks Mommy Diva!
