Lemon Drop Mixer | Stirrings
Apparently, I must spend a lot of time talking about cocktails, because I was asked recently to try out the Stirrings Lemon Drop Mixer. Why, yes! I'll be happy to have a few cocktails and write about it! In fact, why not make it a weekly column? Fantastic. So, what did I think of Stirrings? I think it makes the finest Lemon Drop martini I have ever had, and here is why: usually, when you're out having a martini and order a lemon drop, you get this concoction of some sort of sour mixer and some vodka. Stirrings is made with pure cane sugar and pure Eureka lemon juice, and you pick your vodka. It makes all the difference in the world. But don't just take it from me. I invited a few friends over to try it out, and all agreed that it was the best Lemon Drop martini they had ever had, even if a couple of them haven't had a lemon drop anything since they were 22 and drinking it as a shooter in a beachfront bar. But that is beside the point. We are all cultivated drinkers now who appreciate fine ingredients and fine spirits. No well drinks for us, thank you very much. You can find these at Williams-Sonoma and even Target. Keep an eye out for them because I guarantee you won't find this kind of high quality mixer in the supermarket aisle.
