A Crazy Twist on the Lemon Drop Martini

It’s the weekend so that means we’re breaking out the cocktail recipes. Recess has another fabulous martini concoction featuring Three Olives Vodka.  Since this lady of Recess is feeling a little “silly” today, I’m going with this Loopy Lemon Drop Martini to start off my weekend.  Cheers!

About Three Olives Vodka

Polished. Approachable. Full of Verve. Dubbed the London Vodka (it was imported from England), Three Olives went beyond the classic vodka martini. After being acquired by New Jersey-based Proximo Spirits, Three Olives Vodka now has 20 different flavors including Mango, Rootbeer, and Marilyn Monroe Strawberry giving consumers endless cocktail possibilities. Their vodka is also vegan-friendly and does not contain nuts or lactose; it is also processed without gluten. I think even James Bond would be impressed. Follow Three Olives on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. Check out their website by clicking here (you must be 21 or over).

Let’s throw on a red dress and listen to Robin Thicke.  Yes, I’m definitely feeling silly today.
