(makes 12 servings)
1 Cup of Liquor of Choice (I have made these with Maker’s Mark, as well as many of the
different flavored vodkas and rums, such as Sweet Tea vodka and Raspberry Vodka)
12 Soft Peppermint Sticks, approximately 4” in length (see link above)
Foil cupcake liners
Cut lemons in half, and also take a small slice taken off the ends, so they can sit flat. Using a small paring knife, cut an “X” in the center of the lemon flesh where all the membranes meet, to make inserting the peppermint sticks easier. Place lemons in a resealable plastic bag, and pour liquor over top. Marinate lemons in liquor for at least 4 hours, and up to 24 hours, in refrigerator. Place lemons in cupcake liners, insert the peppermint stick, and serve.
