Lemon Drop

Lemon drops are one of my favorite cocktails to order and make. They are easy and simply delish. This is a recipe to make two cocktails. You could double and triple this ahead of time and keep it in the fridge, pour some in a shaker with ice when you are ready to serve.

Ingredients
3 ounces Vodka
2 ounces fresh lemon juice
2 ounces simple syrup
3 tbs fine white sugar (for glasses)
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of water

Directions


You should make simple syrup ahead of time and keep it in the fridge. In a sauce pan heat 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar. Once the sugar has completely evaporated it is done. Let it cool pour into a container and chill in refrigerator.

First chill two martini glasses in the freezer for at least 5 minutes. In shaker pour in 3 ounces of vodka, 2 ounces of lemon juice, 2 ounces of simple syrup and 1/2 cup of ice. Rim the glasses with lemon juice and then dip in super fine sugar. Shake the cocktail rigorously and then pour into each glass evenly. Make one of these for you and your friend or loved one this valentines day. I guarantee you will love them.
