The Lemon Drop

The Lemon Drop

I'm gonna be perfectly honest with you: I don't think I understood what a lemon drop was supposed to taste like. I had never truly made the connection between the cocktail and the candy. The only other lemon drops that I've had in my life have been way less sweet and more tart. This recipe, however, tasted exactly like the lemondrop candy. That realization happened while I was talking about it on this episode, and I think it probably sounded like I was dissing it for being too sweet. The less sweet/more tart version is good, certainly, but I think this is better and is probably the actual intention.

Shake all ingredients to combine and serve up, garnish with lemon wheel.


  • 1.5oz Vodka
