Does anyone else need a drink? Because I sure do! I’m bringing you a sugar-free lemon drop martini. You can skip to the recipe below, or listen to my little story.
I started working at home nearly a month ago, and while it was fun at first, things are a little scary.
I decided to leave my job just when the world started to go on lockdown. While there was no other time in my life it would be possible
I do have the little anxious voice in my head wondering what I’m going to do if freelance work dries up, or if Bryan ends up getting furloughed.
I think this is probably the biggest test in faith we’ll have. One phrase that I always lean on is “it’s going to be OK.”
I do believe that, but the lack of security still makes me anxious.
I’m having so much fun experimenting with new drinks and other delicious things I like to eat.
I found a great way to make a low-sugar lemon drop martini, and I hope you’re excited for this recipe!
Lemon drops are basically just grown up lemonade, and I won’t let you argue otherwise.
They are sweet, tangy and refreshing, and made for a really solid happy hour pick me-up the other night.
What’s in a lemon drop?
Lemon drops have a few simple ingredients: lemon juice, sugar, vodka and ice. Literally that’s it. Adult lemonade.
How to make a low carb lemon drop
I used Truvia’s granulated sweetener in mine. This one measures 1:1, so it’s a great option to work with.
I do recommend working with a granulated sweetener of your choice.
As you shake it up, it will dissolve. Your sweetener will get distributed evenly, which makes a smooth drink.
Some recipes will suggest using powdered sweetener, but I don’t think it works as well in drinks.
You can find the recipe for this one below. I hope you choose it as your next happy hour cocktail!Print
- Optional step: coat the outside rim of your glasses with water. Place additional sweetener on a plate and tap the rim to coat the glass.
- Combine vodka, lemon juice triple sec, sweetener and ice into your shaker.
- Shake vigorously for 2 minutes to ensure all of the ingredients are combined. Your ice will melt in the shaker.
