Whenever I go out for cocktails, I so desperately want to try the cocktails on the menu, but I cringe at the thought of how much sugar is in them. Am I right?
So when I am at home, I am always looking for ways to make my cocktails with a little more zen and a lot less sugar!
Did you know that a traditional lemon drop martini recipe calls for 1/2 cup granulated sugar? PER MARTINI!
Here’s my Cool + Skinny Lemon Drop Martini recipe for you to enjoy guilt-free this summer!
1-ounce fresh lemon juice
1/2 ounce Cointreau
1 1/2 shots Titos vodka (Okay, I use two!)
1 packet of Stevia sweetener
1/3 cup plain sparkling water
Chill your martini glasses in the freezer for a few minutes. You want these babies to be as cold as Buffalo Bills fans in December.
Add the lemon juice, vodka, Cointreau, Stevia, and Titos to your cocktail shaker.
Shake it until your hands are fridged.
Pour into your chilled martini glass and top with the sparkling water.
Add a lemon garnish if you wish.
