April can often be a transitionary month for some people. It’s the first full month of spring, and change can often be as common as the rain showers. The only inevitability in life ischange, and if you’re able to roll with the punches versus getting caught up in the small stuff, you’ll be a lot better off.
When life hands you lemons, don’t get mad or get even. Think about how you can metaphorically step outside of the box of the situation you are dealing with, and try to make the best of it. Or, when life hands you literal lemons, take these yellow fruits and do the best thing you could do with them: make yourself a Lemon Drop Martini.
A true staple of a fruity cocktail, Lemon Drop Martini’s are all about taking one of the sourest fruits and turning it into something sweet, succulent, and absolutely delicious. Much like the life lesson of turning something negative into a positive, partaking in the Lemon Drop Martini is a perfect way to turn a frown upside down.
What you’ll need:
- 1 ½ oz Stoli Premium Vodka
- ¾ oz lemon juice
- ¾ oz simple syrup
- ½ oz limoncello
Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with the lemon twist.
