I know lemon drop martinis are all the rage but this is a simple cocktail made with limoncello and vodka. The glass gets lined with sugar which still gives you that lemon drop flavor. If you don’t like a really strong martini try adding in some Sprite or simple syrup to the drink. 


  • 2 oz vodka
  • 1 oz limoncello
  • 1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • Ice
  • Lemon twist for garnish


  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Add the vodka, limoncello, fresh lemon juice, and simple syrup to the shaker.
  3. Shake vigorously for about 15 seconds.
  4. Strain the mixture into a chilled martini glass.
  5. Garnish with a lemon twist.
  6. Serve and enjoy!


MyWW: 11 (all 3 plans) 

Instead of limoncello, you can sub freshly squeezed lemon juice for fewer points to make it 3.
