Strain and divide into the martini glasses and float a lemon wheel in each glass
Tips for making the cocktail:
The standard naked lady cocktail recipes calls for grenadine, which I don't use it because it makes the drink too sweet and not balanced. Try it my way first and if you still prefer it sweeter, add 1 ounce of grenadine.
You can use white or gold rum, but just know your choice will affect the color of the cocktail.
You won't be using simple syrup to sweeten this cocktail because sweet vermouth is a sweet alcohol.
Tips for buying and washing lemons
The way to pick a great lemon at the market is to first heft it in your hand. The heavier lemons have more juice than the lighter ones.
When picking a lemon, smell it too. The more lemon fragrance, the fresher the lemon.
Try to gauge the thickness of the rind. The thinner the rind, the more juice it will yield.
Wash your lemons before juicing. Here's how: place the lemons in a bowl with three cups of water and 1 cup of white vinegar. After 10 minutes, remove the lemons and run them under cold water, using a brush to scrub the skin.
If I'm washing one lemon, I just use a natural non-scented hand soap and scrub the skin with a brush. Then I rinse the lemon off well with cold water.
Before juicing the lemon, roll it between your palm and a hard surface like a counter. Doing this will help release the juice.
