Pretty much the adult version of one of our childhood candy store favorites. Tart yet sweet, the Lemon Drop is typically drank as a shot or straight up in a martini glass. Sugar the rim of your glass for an added kick of sweetness.
Apple martinis, also known as Appletinis, are the perfect combination of tart, sweet, and a little sour. There are a few different ways that people make this cocktail but you really can't go wrong. The bright color and fresh apple wedge make it a fun cocktail to serve and very easy to drink.
The classic Gimlet is typically served with gin although more and more people are ordering a Vodka Gimlet as the flavor is a bit more smooth. If you're a fan of making vodka drinks like this at home we suggest storing your vodka in the freezer to keep it primed for mixing.
A variation on the French Martini, this recipe replaces pineapple for the more exotic, Carribbean flavor of mango. Chambord is one of our favorite cocktail additions -- when we restock our bar, we always make sure a bottle of this is on the list.
