Christie's Lemon Drop

My sister makes the best cocktails. My favorite is her lemon drops. She made them last summer and they were such a hit that she made them for our family vacation and lets just say that was a great day. It is the best amount of sour and sweet combined. Try it and let me know what you think.

This is her exact measurements and I added the ounces to give you an idea. However not every shot glass is 1 ounce. It may be a little more and that's ok. This is a guide and you can alter it to your size glass. Its best to chill the glass before adding ingredients. Enjoy.


1 shot fresh lemon juice (aka 1 ounce)
1 shot Vodka (aka 1 ounce)
1 1/2 shot triple sec (aka 1 1/2 ounces)
1 cup ice
1/4 cup sugar to rim glass (optional)


Pour all ingredients in a shaker except sugar and shake well. Rim glass with lemon juice and then dip in sugar. pour in cocktail and add garnish of a lemon slice. This makes one cocktail at a time.


  1. This is one of my fav cocktails.
    Most places make it to boozy and not lemony enough (for me).
    Christie's has just the right proportions of flavours. Maybe tonight!

  2. I love, love, love lemon drops, but haven't made one myself! Thank you for a recipe! :)

  3. Hi Andrea. I just dropped by to catch up and had to comment on these lemon drops. They look like the perfect cocktail for summer. Maybe for whatever and whenever. I will definitely have to try these. Thanks

    1. My sister just made them for our vacation and there wasn't single person who didn't like them. Let me know if you also enjoy them.
