Low Carb Lemon Drop Martinis

Share This Post:

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.

Anyhow!

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!
