Lemon Drop Cocktail

The lemon drop martini or Lemon drop cocktail was featured drink at home this weekend. This recipe originated in the 1970’s in San Francisco. It likely started as a cocktail riff on the popular lemon drop candy.

We added a lemon sugar rim to ours for a little extra sweetness and it hit the spot perfectly.

Here is what you need to make your own Lemon drop cocktail at home! Cheers!

1 oz. Vodka

1/2oz Triple Sec

1/2oz lemon juice

1/2oz simple syrup

Add contents to shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into cocktail glass.

To make lemon sugar for the rim just add fresh lemon zest to granulated sugar shake or stir together. Used a lemon wedge to wet the rim of the glass and dip in the lemon sugar.
