Tonight the premier of the final season of Mad Men will hit my TV at 10pm. It's also Spring Break around here so guess who shouldn't have to get up early tomorrow morning? Me. But I will because my oldest, the 19 year old, is moving out...I will get up and share her joy in her independence. In preparation, and because I have a glorious abundance of Meyer Lemons, I will sip my perfected Lemon Drop Martini.
3 oz Absolut Citron Vodka
1 oz Grand Marnier
1 oz Simple Syrup
1 1/2 oz Meyer lemon juice
Mix in a shaker full of ice and pour into a chilled, sugar rimmed martini glass .
If you like yours a little more tart, just reduce the simple syrup ;)
