In and Out Lemontini Cocktail Recipe

A sweet dessert cocktail, the in and out lemontini transforms the in and out martini into a dry cocktail.

It’s an amazing cocktail that’s semi-sweet and tart, which will make you fall in love.

Recipe Variations

You can add the vermouth back if you like, but add it to the shaker with the vodka. To make a vodka martini a bit sweeter, you can add a teaspoon of honey; Incorporate 1/2 ounce of dry vermouth into the cocktail to create a perfectly balanced cocktail. Pour limoncello into the glass, rim it with sugar, and then rinse it. There will be just a little sweetness in each sip. You don’t have lemoncello? If you do not have lemon syrup on hand, you can use a lemon-flavored syrup. The mix can be made as simple as adding a little lemon juice to simple syrup (essentially creating a sour mix). If you like, you can flavor the simple syrup with the zest of whole lemons while it is still hot. Let the flavor infuse for a few moments before it cools completely. The lemontini is a great way to try your favorite flavored vodka. Any of the berry vodkas as well as any citrus or coconut liquor are good options. Make sure your vodka is of high quality for optimum results.


You cannot stress enough the importance of using a superb vodka in this cocktail.

Despite how simple limoncello is to make at home, it isn’t a quick process. Infusion leads to a rich and complex flavor after nearly three months and is one of the longest infusion times of all liquors. You’ll find that it is well worth the wait if you’re patient! It is good to chill your glass for this lemontini so that it stays nice and cold. It is easiest to cool down cocktails quickly if you do not have room in the freezer to store cocktail glasses.
