With its fresh and vibrant colors and just a touch of dryness, the April rain matches perfectly with spring-inspired moods. A simple twist on the traditional vodka martini, it gives the drink a lime flavor. One of the nice things about this recipe is that it has a drier flavor than other lime-flavoured cocktails. It only has a hint of sweetness because of lime juice, which is sour and sweet at the same time. The flavor is uplifting, making it a nice change from the sweet and fruity vodka martinis you usually see. You can enjoy an excellent dinner cocktail by the April rain.
