The Cherry Lemon Drop Martini combines two of my favorite martinis together. I love a lemon drop martini, especially in the summer because it's refreshing on a warm day. The addition of my favorite flavored vodka - cherry - turns this into an adult cherry lemonade.
I have a fun garnish idea for this one that, frankly, I stole from one of the foodie shows - though I can't remember which one. Take your Maraschino cherry (or other smaller garnish) and drop it in an ice cube tray then fill with either filtered water or sweetened lemon juice. Leave the stem on the cherry for a natural style martini pick. For other martinis try dropping in an olive and pour in some olive juice, or a chocolate kiss frozen in milk - get inventive and have some fun. I also picked up a cute ice cube tray that makes fun shapes and this adds to the smiles at cocktail hour too.
