Sparkling Lemon Drop Martini

This Sparkling Lemon Drop Martini is just the drink to add a spark to any get together!

What is more festive than a cocktail that sparkles? A light and refreshing drink made with minimal ingredients and goes down smooth. It is the perfect cocktail to impress any guest!

Lemon Drop Martinis take me back to when I first turned 21, because Lemon Drops were, and still are, my Mom and my cocktail of choice. Not to strong yet full on flavor. Fresh and crisp, they are hard to pass up.

To update the classic drink, I used lemon vodka and real lemon juice to ensure there is no shortage on flavor. A touch of stevia, or sugar, cuts the bitterness and is finished off with sparkling water to add bubbles that make this drink festive for every soiree this cheerful season!



  • 1 1/2 ounces lemon vodka
  • 2 ounces fresh lemon juice
  • Pinch sugar or liquid stevia, optional
  • 2 ounces sparkling water
  • 1 lemon wedge
  • Sugar for rimming

Rim the top of a martini glass with the lemon wedge. And dip into sugar to coat. Set aside.

In a shaker, add the lemon vodka, lemon juice, sugar/stevia if using and a handful of ice. Shake for 15 seconds. Strain into martini glass, leaving the ice in the shaker. Top with sparkling water.

Serve immediately!
