Fresh Strawberry Lemon Martini Vodka Cocktail Recipe
The kitchensinkit fresh strawberry lemon vodka martini is so delicious! The cocktail recipe uses fresh strawberries, lemon, & vodka - that's it! Such a refreshing vodka drink using only a few ingredients and no additional sugar (other than what's in the strawberries & vodka). I love a good vodka cocktail & don't like my drinks too sugary, so this martini recipe is mouthwatering & super refreshing.
However, we can't take total credit for this recipe since it's inspired by a drink we had at the Canopy Central Cafe & Bar in DC. It's the rooftop on top of the Hilton hotel & our amazing bartender's name was Sunny! You can read about our weekend getaway to Washington DC here!
