Thirsty Thursday: Martini Edition

Hi, Happy Thursday to everyone,

The weekend is almost here and what better way to kick it off then with a tasty Martini - I am a huge fan of martinis. We all have our favorite go to cocktails while we are out for drinks. Here are three martinis you can order that are served at every bar, and are sure to satisfy your taste buds 


If you want to have a night in, you can bartend yourself and throw together your favorite one with the recipes below :)

Lemon Drop Martini

 2 ounce vodka
1/2 ounce triple sec
1 ounce simple syrup
1 ounce freshly squeezes lemon
Sugar for the glass rim
lemon wedge 

Take your lemon wedge and run it around the rim. Dip the glass rim into sugar and coat it to you liking. After you have sugar on the rim put the glass in the freezer to chill.  Pour all the liquid ingredients into the shaker and shake like crazy, about 30 seconds. Pour the liquid in the chilled martini glass, and garnish with lemon wedge.
