The Lemon Drop Cocktail is the perfect combination of sour and sweet. I was introduced to them whilst living in the States and I don’t know why I haven’t had one sooner! They’re also great because you can adjust the levels of sweetness vs sourness to your taste.
You can also garnish with a DIY dried lemon if you have them on hand!
LEMON DROP COCKTAIL
1oz Triple Sec

Zest a lemon and add to your sugar. Then use the lemon juice to rim the edge of your glasses with the lemon and sugar mixture.
Add ice, Vodka, Triple Sec, Lemon Juice and simple syrup to a cocktail shaker and shake. Strain into a the glass, preferably a martini glass.
Enjoy and repeat!
