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.
The cocktail we now know as the martini has a muddy origin story; its name has changed over the years, as have its contents. But by the early 20th century, what we now refer to as the martini was codified as a mix of London Dry gin and dry vermouth, garnished with an olive or a lemon twist. Since then it has permeated American culture and become an unrivaled symbol of sophistication. In its famous conical glass, the martini is a visual currency the world over, on millions of menus and neon signs. In many ways the martini is THE cocktail. Our take on the 50/50 martini (also known as the perfect martini) consists of half Botanist Gin and half dry vermouth. This variation is lighter and more refreshing, perfect for the spring and summer seasons.
Originally created for Chambord's worldwide promotion, the key ingredient to this drink is the Chambord liqueur. The unique feature for this drink is that it was created specifically for a liqueur, which means substituting it would leave a bland taste.
