lemon drop

October 26, 2011 § 26 Comments

this is another one of my favorite fun drinks. if you enjoy sugar and lemons, there’s really no way that you cannot like this cocktail in my opinion. an ex co-worker turned me onto these, if you’re reading you know who you are! and the best part of this drink are the sugar crystals alongside the rim. oh me and my darned sweet tooth!

ingredients: {1 serving}
• 1.5 ounces of vodka
• 3/4 ounces of freshly squeezed lemon juice
• 2 T simple syrup or to taste {i like to add more because i like it sweet!} ~ heat up equal parts 1/2 cup water to sugar in a pot. allow sugar to dissolve. cool before adding to shaker ~ {store leftovers in fridge and use in desserts and other cold drinks such as iced tea}
• lemon peel for garnish {optional}

to do:
pour the vodka, lemon juice and simple syrup into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. shake well. strain into a chilled glass and garnish with lemon twists.
enjoy and drink responsibly!!
