There's something I love about a martini. The simplicity, the chilled liquid, the fact that it makes me feel like James Bond. Ooh, I think I nailed it on that last one.
This glass below is a little on the frilly side, I think James would use something with cleaner lines, but still.
Limoncello is a natural addition to the classic Lemon Drop recipe, it just adds more alcohol and sugar. But those ingredients tend to make anything a bit more fun.
It magnifies the goodness that was already there, so I dubbed it the Double Down. That's a Blackjack reference for you super straight-laced people in my readership (who don't exist).
