Upgraded Lemon Drop

The Lemon Drop was one of the most popular cocktails in the US in the later part of the 20th century. It should follow a simple formula of spirit, lemon, and sweetener, but sadly, in many bars the drink disintegrated into a candied mess. It's time to give the Lemon Drop the glory it deserves.

Use a high-quality citrus vodka such as Stolichnaya, or try infusing your own citrus vodka for a homemade touch.
