Thoughts for Thursday: Easy Lemon Martini

It's Thursday, which means I am linking up with my girls Natalie and Annie for Thoughts on Thursday!

This week it is all about the end of summer drink!

It's no secret that I love martinis (I had a delicious dirty one last night!) and I love new twists on them.  Lemon martinis can be a tad too sour for me, so I played around with the proportions and sweetening to make one I thought tasted delicious!  This could work in a regular martini glass, but it seemed Mason Jar appropriate and made for outside on a summer evening!


Ingredients
1 - 2 shots vodka (depending on how strong you like it)
Juice of one lemon
3 lemon slices
Ice
Lemon flavored seltzer water
Three drops stevia or one packet sweetener

Directions
- Fill glass with ice and top with vodka.  I prefer two shots but if that is too strong, use one
- Squeeze lemon juice in and add in lemon slices and sweetener of choice
- Stir and fill to top with seltzer
- Sip and enjoy!
