Lemon Drop

Lemon Drop cocktail with citrus vodka and triple sec

A Lemon Drop is usually made with simple syrup, but Gaz Regan (author of our dog-eared copy of The Joy of Mixology) suggests swapping in triple sec instead. We dig it; it kind of tastes like a hard candy. Lemon syrup or oleo saccharum would bring an interesting flavor, too.

Traditionally, the recipe calls for lemon vodka, but you can substitute any citrus vodka (or rum) for an Orange Drop, Bergamot Drop, Yuzu Drop, etc.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail or coupé glass and garnish with a lemon wedge or wheel. If you’d like, rim the glass with sugar beforehand.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
