A limoncello martini is a bright and citrusy martini! A shaken blend of limoncello, vodka, triple sec, lemon juice, and a thyme simple syrup. Make this on a warm day and enjoying the refreshing lemon flavors. Recipe below is for 2 martinis.


4 ounces vodka
2 ounces limoncello
2 ounces triple sec
4 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 teaspoons thyme simple syrup (recipe below)

Thyme Simple Syrup
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 large handful fresh thyme sprigs


1. Start by making the thyme simple syrup. Bring the cup of water to boil in a medium pot. Once boiling, add the cup of sugar and stir to dissolve. Once dissolved, remove from heat and add the large handful of thyme sprigs. Cover and allow to steep for 30 minutes. Then, remove the thyme sprigs and you’ve got thyme simple syrup! Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

2. To make the martinis, fill a cocktail shaker about 3/4 full of ice. Add the vodka, triple sec, limoncello, lemon juice and thyme simple syrup. Shake vigorously for at least 10 seconds. Strain into martini glasses. Garnish with lemon slices and a thyme sprig.
