This delectable painting is by Delilah Smith, a Michigan artist. I came across her work by accident while searching for something on the web. I immediately fell in love with the colors and whimsy of her paintings...and of course, the bees! See them buzzing around that scrumptous-looking drink? I found each of her works to be happy and bright. Delilah trys to paint a work of art each day. I will feature more of her paintings in the weeks to come so watch for them.

Lemon Drop Martini Recipe
This drink is a sweet, lemony concoction to be served in a fun martini glass.
1 1/2 ounces vodka
1/2 ounce triple sec
1 teaspoon superfine sugar
3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
Superfine sugar for dipping
Twisted peel of lemon
The vodka, triple sec, sugar and lemon juice go into an ice filled shaker.
You need to shake sufficiently to fully dissolve the sugar but don’t shake so hard that you get pieces of ice when you pour the drink.
You want the sugar to completely dissolve in the shaker, so you must use superfine sugar, which dissolves instantly.
With a wedge of lemon, trace the rim of the martini glass leaving a thin wet film. Dip the rim of the glass in superfine sugar.
Pour your lemon drop martini into a martini glass and garnish with the twisted lemon peel. Enjoy!
