New Year’s Eve is tomorrow night!    Do you have a signature cocktail ready to go?   I’ve been having a tough time figuring out which one I want to serve.  For our Christmas I served this Cranberry Ginger Margarita which was a huge hit.   I was also thinking about Citrus Moscato Sangria which is a great winter beverage.   Then I thought that maybe I need a mocktail like my Blue Sparkler Mocktail.

A delightful and delicious Lemon Ginger Tea Martini

In the end I decided to make a signature martini and a signature champagne cocktail.  I’ll be sharing the champagne cocktail recipe tomorrow so stay tuned.

I am actually not a huge martini fan.  They are often way too strong for me and are more about the vodka then the actual flavor.  I like to taste the flavor in my martini and I like a hint of sweetness as well.   Basically, I like to enjoy my martini when I can.

Lemon Ginger Tea Martini has tea steeped lemon vodka, honey, and ginger simple syrup mixed into a delicious martini.

This Lemon Ginger Tea Martini is awesome.   Most people in my town love sweet tea so this is a great recipe to serve at a party.  I started with lemon vodka and steeped a tea bag in the vodka for about 5 minutes.   That gives the martini it’s lemon and tea flavor.  Then I added some lemon juice, honey, and ginger simple syrup.   Shake in a cocktail shaker and strain it into the martini glass.

It looks just like iced tea.   It tastes like iced tea.   It is sweet but not sickeningly sweet.  There is a lot of lemon flavor, a hint of honey, and a bit of the ginger flavor.   It’s a really great martini packed with flavor but not overly strong.   I garnished mine with a lemon slice and a piece of crystalized ginger.  I also rimmed the edge with yellow sparkling sugar to give it some shimmer for the new year.
