Ginger Lemon Squeeze

Drawing of Ginger Lemon Squeeze recipe

Oh yeah.  Ginger and lemon.  Not too sweet, just the perfect amount of sour.  And did I mention that this one was invented for me by my husband and my sister in honor of my 50th birthday?  Yes.  But watch out, it will come up on you quickly.  I recommend Canton Ginger Liquor.  Keep it on hand in your arsenal, there are many delicious concoctions that can be made with it.

Ginger Lemon Squeeze

(makes one)

1 1/2 ounces vodka

1 ounce ginger liquor

juice from one lemon

1/4 ounce limoncello

lemon wheel for garnish

Fill a martini glass with ice and water.  Set aside.  Fill a shaker with ice.  Add vodka, ginger liquor, lemon juice and limoncello to shaker.  Cover and shake vigorously for 30 seconds, until your fingers begin to stick from the cold.  Pour out ice water that is in the glass.  Strain cocktail into glass and garnish with lemon.  Enjoy immediately.

Hi I'm Andrea I love to cook and bake for my friends and loved ones. Especially comforting foods such as soup and bread and don't forget the sweet treats! I live on Cape Cod in Massachusetts in a coastal New England town where life is dictated by the seasons: going to the beach in the summer and shoveling snow in the wintertime. I am lucky to have my days revolve around my family: I have two children, a husband and a dog. My parents live right down the street in the house where I grew up. Life is good here and I always want to share it through a delicious meal and a friendly gathering. So, get out your soup pot and your baking pans and gather up your ingredients. Let's cook up some magic together!
