In the 1939 movie classic The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy’s Wildest Dreams took her ‘Over The Rainbow’ , “Where troubles melt like lemon drops”.
Could it be she was channeling her inner-Ina, and those Lemon Drops were actually ~ Martinis?
You don’t need to be facing a storm or from Kansas to enjoy this 5 star classic cocktail ~ twist-er.
The Barefoot Contessa’s proportions are fit for a crowd, however, it’s easy to modify her recipe.
Each of these Lemon Drops were made with :
the juice of a lemon,
a teaspoon of fine sugar,
a splash of sparkling water
&&& a bigger splash of icy vodka
Not even the ‘Wicked Witch of the West ~Beach” would say you shouldn’t double your wildest dreams this weekend.
PUCKER ~ UP my lovies. xoxo
