Lemon Meringue Martini

Lemon Meringue Martini

This drink dates back to when we finally broke down and bought our first bottle of whipped vodka.  We scoffed at first but suddenly all these vodka brands were getting themselves whipped and fluffed and we couldn't fight it off anymore.  So when we were browsing around the liquor store (yes, we are the kind of people who browse in liquor stores) one of those bottles went into our basket.  Back home we approached it with some doubt as to whether it would taste sweet or artificial but, it was good.  Really good.

Since then, our whipped, fluffed and flavored collection has grown to...um...considerably larger proportions.  And that's meant reinventing some of our older cocktail creations.  Because these vodkas are both sweeter and lower in alcohol than traditional vodkas, we've re-calibrated some older recipes as well as played around with new ones.  This lemony delight is actually a good example of how much different the whipped vodka is because an ounce of lemon juice to two ounces of vodka should be sour as hell.  But this drink is in perfect sweet and sour balance.  It's in perfect yummy balance, too.  Cheers!





Per Serving:
2 oz. Whipped vodka
1 oz. Fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz. Simple syrup
1 oz. Cream or half & half
1 oz. Whipped cream topping

Add the vodka, lemon juice, simple syrup and cream to a cocktail shaker and fill with ice.  Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.  Garnish with the whipped cream topping and a bit of lemon zest, if desired.

  1. Anita, that looks fabulous - boozy, drinkable desserts are always winners in my book. I'm not a champion boozehound like I thought I was. I had no idea they make whipped vodka! I'm going to look for it the next time I'm at the liquor store.
