I made this with Smirnoff Silver (unflavored) and it was still delicious. I used Limoncello and all the other ingredients. Lovely recipe. As for the debate about whether this is a true martini: who cares? Boston Cream Pie is not a pie. I say po-tah-toh, you say po-tay-toh. Mox Nix. It's great no matter what! ;o)

- 1 tablespoon sugar
- Lemon wedge
- 1 cup crushed ice
- 6 tablespoons chilled lemon-flavored vodka (3 oz.; see notes)
- 2 tablespoons chilled lemon-flavored liqueur (1 oz.; see notes)
- 4 teaspoons lemon juice
- 2 thin strips (3 in. long) lemon peel
- 1. Pour sugar onto a small, rimmed plate. Rub rims of two martini glasses with lemon wedge to moisten, then dip rims into sugar to coat (see notes).
- 2. Place ice in a cocktail shaker. Add vodka, liqueur, and lemon juice. Shake until mixture is very cold, about 10 seconds. Strain into glasses. Garnish each with a twist of lemon peel.
Look for lemon- flavored vodka and liqueur (such as the Italian liquore di limoni) in well-stocked supermarkets and liquor stores. For extra frostiness, put sugar-rimmed glasses in the freezer for 7 to 8 minutes.
