Is it Cocktail Friday AGAIN ALREADY??!!

Whew! These weeks are just flying by....its "Cocktail Friday" again girls! This week I am featuring something super refreshing, as it is "Hotter Than Dutch Love" (as my grandmother would say) here in the Northeast today. I need a dip in the pool and about 3 of these!

Frosty Lemon Martini

1 tablespoon sugar
Lemon wedge
1 cup crushed ice
6 tablespoons chilled lemon-flavored vodka (3 oz.; see notes)
2 tablespoons chilled lemon-flavored liqueur (1 oz.; see notes)
4 teaspoons lemon juice
2 thin strips (3 in. long) lemon peel

1) Pour sugar onto a small, rimmed plate. Rub rims of two martini glasses with lemon wedge to moisten, then dip rims into sugar to coat (see notes).
2) Place ice in a cocktail shaker. Add vodka, liqueur, and lemon juice. Shake until mixture is very cold, about 10 seconds. Strain into glasses. Garnish each with a twist of lemon peel and serve!
