Our ingredient this week is lemons. As I was contemplating what to make, I remembered a drink recipe I came up with last summer. I named it “A Taste of Sunshine”. It reminds me of a sunny summer day. Okay, here in Alaska we’ve had over twice the normal amount of snow, it’s dreary as I’m writing this post, but I can only dream about summer not being too far away. Ago, it’s still about 3 months away for us, but I can still dream.
A Taste of Summer
1 teaspoon honey
1 ounce fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1 1/2 ounces limoncello
1 1/2 ounces seltzer water
Dissolve the honey in the lemon juice. Pour this mixture, along with the limoncello and seltzer water in a shaker filled with ice. Shake briskly and strain into martini glass. Garnish with rosemary sprig.
