Lemon Drops...and NOT the candy
Here's how I make 'em...
1 and 1/2 cups lemon flavored vodka
1/2 cup Triple sec
1 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup simple syrup
2 cups ice
(Simple syrup Recipe)
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
(bring to a boil on the stove, stirring constantly until the liquid is clear--then chill in the fridge)
(SECRET TIP: Use a lime - not a lemon - to rim the glass with liquid, then dip in sugar and let set until hard)
Mix ingredients together and pour into a shaker (we use a Starbucks travel mug - with a lid)
Put ice in shaker and pour ingredients over ice. Shake!
Then pour chilled ingredients into a sugar rimmed martini glass and serve.
(I put a slice of lemon on the edge of the glass just for fun...and a little extra squeeze;)
