Lemon Drops...and NOT the candy

They are so simple to make and ohhhhhh so yummy.

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;)

This sounds like something Rick would like. He loves lemon. He loves it so much, in fact, that he had our wedding cake have a lemon filling. :)
