Lemon Cream Martini

"A yummy lemon alternative to a lemon drop - can you ever have too many martini recipes?? YUMMY!!! Thanks again to Sandra Lee for another fabulous recipe!! She featured an entire show of lemon based recipes -this one, Lemon Chicken Soup,Lemon-Herb Butter-Basted Chicken,Lemon Garlic Broccoli, and Lemon Pudding Brulee with Blueberries ALL of which I am submitting because I think it would make for an awsome spring/summer dinner party idea!! Enjoy- I know we will!! ** Note - she did use a Lemon Drop RImmer by Stirrings to rim the glass - check them out if you haven't ever used their products for your tini's - they have something to enhance your favorite - just a fun touch to make them that much more fun when throwing a party!! ***Update - original recipe called for 1/2 oz Limoncello, but everyone at our party agreed that it was MUCH better with at least double, so I changed the recipe to 1 oz. Make to suit taste. ;)"

  1. 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.
  2. 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:
  3. 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!
  4. 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!
  5. 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!
