The Best Lemon Drop Martini
from What’s Cooking America
1 1/2 oz. good quality vodka
1/2 oz. orange liqueur (Triple Sec, Grand Marnier, Cointreau, etc.)
1 tsp superfine sugar or to taste
3/4 oz. freshly-squeezed lemon juice
Superfine sugar for dipping
Twisted peel of lemon
Mix the vodka, orange liqueur, sugar, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice; shake well (supposedly the cocktail is to be shaken 40 times to make sure the sugar is well blended).
Pour strained liquor into sugar-rimmed martini cocktail glass and garnish with a twisted peel of lemon. To create a sugar-rimmed glass, take a lemon wedge and rub the drinking surface of the glass so it is barely moist. Dip the edge of the glass into the superfine sugar.
Chai Tea Creme Brulee

4 chai tea bags (or ½ cup loose-leaf chai tea)
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup sugar
6 ounces rum
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Ground cinnamon, as needed for finishing
In a medium pot, bring the water to a boil over medium heat. Remove the pot from the heat and add the tea bags (or the loose-leaf tea). Let the mixture steep for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove the tea bags or strain out the loose tea.
Return the tea mixture to the pot and then stir in the milk, honey and sugar. Heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is dissolved. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the rum and vanilla extract. Divide the mixture among four mugs and garnish each with a pinch or two of cinnamon. Serve immediately.
We think it’s the all American, down home appeal of this mason jar glass that’s put it in high demand ever since the warmer months started, but there is still plenty of stock available for your upcoming events! This 16 ounce handled mason jar style provides a fun way to serve comfort beverages like tea and lemonade, but also makes an excellent event keepsake.
