Kathy's Perfect Roof Top Lemon Drop Martini Recipe

Kathy's Perfect Roof Top Lemon Drop Martini Recipe
1 1/2 oz triple sec
1 1/2 oz Peach Schnapps
1 tsp lemon drop sugar (minty sugar)
4 tsp honey
1.5 oz freshly squeezed
lemon juice

Mint sprig and Lemon twist
Mix the Grey Goose vodka, triple
sec,honey, sugar and lemon juice in a mixing cup whisk til everything is
dissolved and blended then add to a cocktail shaker half filled with ice cubes.
Shake till chilled. Pour strained liquor into a sugar-rimmed martini glass and
garnish with a twisted peel of lemon and a mint sprig. *Sugaring the rim
of the glass: actually wetting your finger rubbing it on the rim of the glass
and then dipping the rim in sugar worked best.
* I got my Lemon drop sugar from ABC catalog, but I
think you can get it at Spec's and World Market also. The sugar is bright
yellow, very fine and has a mildly lemony-minty taste.
While staying at the FAIRMONT OLYMPIC HOTEL IN Seattle, my husband and I
would have Roof Top Lemondrops as a nightcap. Its called Rooftop as the hotel
has a bee skeep on it roof and it produces its own honey for use in the
restaurant, and in the bar for cocktails. They also sell honey to the Pike
Brewery for the making of some of their honey ales. This is one way the hotel is
being Eco friendly and keeping Seattle sustainable.

I fell in love with the Lemondrops and the Honey Bee's and wanted to
perfect the recipe.
