Lemonberry Martini

Lemonberry Martini abeautifulmess.com It’s always fun to create a cocktail that evokes a treasured memory. This summer, my husband Todd and I took a little mini anniversary trip to Kansas City and had one of the best meals of our life. We tried a few of the most delicious sounding cocktails and resolved to recreate a few of them once we got home. It only took a few hours of turning our kitchen into a cocktail lab before we figured out our own delicious version.

Pour 2 ounces of cranberry juice, 1 ounce elderflower liqueur, and 1 ounce citron vodka into a cocktail shaker with ice. Juice one lemon and add 1 ounce of lemon juice into the shaker (add a little less if you want your drink to be a little less tart). Give your cocktail a good shake and pour into a martini glass.
