It's been so bloody hot here lately that a cool, refreshing lemon cocktail was just the ticket to beat the heat of hot summer days. But. . . .I was out of fresh lemons! Luckily, I did have a nice little can of frozen lemonade tucked away in my freezer so I "made do" as my Mom used to say and spooned some of the undiluted frozen lemonade into my shot glass instead! I left out the sugar the first time around because frozen lemonade is already sweetened but I found it was not sweetened enough for me and added one teaspoon of powdered sugar. This not only sweetened the lemon, it gave it a nice creamy froth too!
LEMON DROP MARTINI
(for when you have fresh lemons)
LEMON AIDE MARTINI
(for when you don't)
I call this emergency "MacGyver" lemonade martini a Lemon Aide Martini because it was exactly that on a hot day - lemon aide.
If you need an even simpler version of a lemon martini, check out The White Trash Lemon Drop Martini - it's a hoot and a half.
