Libation of the Week: Citron Lemon Drop Martini … as served at Vesuvio Bistro.

Vesuvio is home to the famous spaghetti chitarra, a delectable dish of egg noodle pasta tossed with shiitake mushrooms and — to customers’ delight — tossed tableside in a wheel of Parmesan cheese. It’s a creamy digestible decadence dream.

Barkeep Jacob provides friendly service with a smile. He says the secret to their lemon drop is the fresh ingredients: fresh squeezed lemon, housemade simple syrup — no premade mix here.

“Don’t dress it up,” Jacob said. Simple is better. “Use fresh lemon and sweeten it just enough. Let the ingredients shine.”

Also pictured here is a version of a rum crusta — it was tasty and pretty!! Honey (the hubster of 26 years) challenged Jacob to fix something stout, a drink he’d love to fix all the time. And voila! This was the result. Ladies & gentleman, we have a winner.
