If you’re a fan of a good Lemon Drop Martini, then you’re going to swoon over this fizzy spin. Light and refreshing, it’s the perfect sipper for summertime.
I absolutely love simple cocktails. My husband and I enjoy a little happy hour each evening before I cook dinner, and we’ve been making these on repeat! Cold, tart and wonderfully sparkling… is there any better combination?

This Sparkling Raspberry Lemon Drop Martini is so easy to make at home. Skip going out and catching an Uber back… stay in for drinks tonight!
- 2 Lemon Slices
- Granulated Sugar, as needed
- 4 ounces Vodka
- 1.5 ounces Triple Sec
- Juice of 1 Lemon
- Ice, as needed
- ½ TBSP. Granulated Sugar
- 1 Raspberry Lemon Brizo Craft Spiked Seltzer, chilled
- TO RIM YOUR GLASSES: Pour a generous amount of sugar on a plate and set aside. Take a lemon slice and cut a slit in the middle. Run the lemon along the edge of your glass and then dip the glass into the sugar.
- ADD TO THE SHAKER: Pour vodka, triple sec and the juice of one lemon into your cocktail shaker. Fill with ice and shake vigorously. Pour evenly through the cocktail strainer into each glass.
- THE FIZZY FACTOR: Top each cocktail with Brizo's Craft Spiked Seltzer and enjoy immediately.
NOTES ON SPARKLING RASPBERRY LEMON DROP MARTINI:
- I used 1/4th a can of Brizo’s Craft Spiked Seltzer per martini… So you’ll have enough leftover to make a second round! Cheers to that.
- The sugar helps offset the acidity of the fresh lemon juice. If you’re not a fan of granulated sugar you can substitute it with whatever sweetener you enjoy most (agave, honey, etc).
- Lemon Tip: To get the most juice out of your lemon, roll it on the counter under your palm with a bit of pressure.
