The Lemon Drop

  • 1 part lemon vodka
  • 1 part simple syrup
  • 1 part lemon juice

I know. So straight forward. It was the first one I ever tried to make. And yet I mixed and tried and researched and applied, and really, this is the best way to go. It is very tart. So if you want a little less zing, go with regular vodka. If you want a little mellow, use vanilla vodka. And if you are adventurous? Well, then use whatever vodka you please.

Pour just a little sugar in a saucer. Take your glass and rub the rim with a slice of lemon. Twist it in the sugar. Drop a handful of ice cubes into a cocktail shaker. Pour all ingredients over the ice. Lid on. shake away. Pour into your sugar rimmed glass & enjoy.

Simple syrup really is that. Simple. Put a pot on the stove, heat 1 cup of water, dissolve 1 cup of sugar. Remove from heat. Chill. Can be stored in the frig for a couple of weeks.
