A refreshing,
must-try Meyer-Lemontini
you're sure to enjoy 

(made with my home-
grown meyer lemons)...
Servings: (1)
Prep: 10 Mins.


2 ozs. Stolichnaya Vodka
--(aka Stolies; Russian Vodka)
½ oz. Triple Sec
½ teaspoon superfine sugar
¾ oz. freshly squeezed Meyer lemon juice

Superfine sugar
Meyer lemon zest

Superfine sugar
--Kitchen torch


Cut one ½ slice meyer lemon to reserve for garnish, and set aside.

Cut a small wedge of meyer lemon to rim glass, and set aside.

Place superfine sugar and zest of meyer lemon on a saucer, and set aside.

Reserve the remaining meyer lemon to squeeze for the cocktail. 

Create the glazed meyer lemon slice by dipping it on both sides in the sugar/zest mixture, and use a kitchen torch to glaze.

Create a sugar-rimmed glass by taking a meyer lemon wedge and rub the rim of the glass so it is slightly moist. Dip the damp edge of the glass into the sugar/zest.

Mix the Stolichnaya Vodka, Triple Sec, sugar and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker half filled with ice cubes. 

Shake well to make sure sugar is blended, until the outside of shaker begins to frost.  

Pour strained liquor into the prepared sugar/zest-rimmed martini glass and garnish with the glazed meyer lemon wedge.

~ Enjoy, in moderation of course ~ Cheers!!


Tips:  If you are using regular lemons instead be sure to increase the superfine sugar to 1 teaspoon in the cocktail, as meyer lemons tend to be sweeter.  

You can also glaze your lemon slice (garnish) by broiling it on a tin foil-lined baking sheet for a couple of minutes if you do not have a kitchen torch.
