This is a drink that a friend of mine Andrea and fellow blogger is sipping on in her profile picture on Tasty Kitchen. I had to try it, it looked so good. She has a very nice site, filled with fantastic recipes. I also love the name of her site Quest For Delish. Isn’t that the quest we all should be on!!! Here is her “delish” cocktail.
3 oz. vodka
2 oz. fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 oz. simple syrup
3 tsp. fine white sugar (for the glasses)
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
In a saucepan combine sugar and water and bring to a boil. Stir until all the sugar is dissolved. Let cool, pour into a container and refrigerate until cold. This will keep in the refrigerator for 3 months so you can make this again and again. Or use with other cocktails.
Chill two martini glasses in the freezer for at least 5 min. In a shaker pour in the vodka, lemon juice, simple syrup and 1/2 cup of ice. Rim the glasses with lemon juice and dip in the fine sugar. Shake the cocktail rigorously adn then pour into each glass evenly. Enjoy, they are perfect for summer or anytime.
