Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup sugar, preferably superfine
  • 1/2 cup strained fresh lemon juice (about 2 large lemons)
  • 1/2 cup chilled vodka
  • Ice cubes
  • 1 cup chilled sweet sparkling white wine, such as Asti Spumante
  • Lemon slices, optional
Directions

Place 4 large martini glasses in the freezer. Combine the sugar and lemon juice in a small bowl; whisk until the sugar dissolves. (The lemon syrup can be made 3 days ahead. Cover and chill.)

Combine 1/4 cup lemon syrup and the vodka in a martini shaker. Add ice cubes. Cover and shake 8 to 10 times, then strain the mixture equally into 4 very cold martini glasses (about 3 tablespoons each). Add 1/4 cup chilled sparkling wine to each glass. Garnish each martini with a lemon slice if desired, and serve very cold.
