Lemon Pepper Martini Recipe 

I am more of a classic cocktail kind of a gal. But back in the day, I knocked back my share of “girly” martinis. One might think of this as a tipple with training wheels, but seeing as it’s made with homebrewed hooch, I think it’s earned its big girl status.

• 2 tablespoons sugar
• 3 ounces limoncello
• 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
• Freshly ground black pepper
• Ice
• 1 lemon wedge
• 2 lemon slices (optional)



1. Pour the sugar onto a plate at least as wide as your martini glasses.

2. Combine the limoncello, lemon juice, and a few grinds of pepper in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously for about 1 minute.
