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.

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.

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
