Today we’re going to show you how to make the lemon drop cocktail, a martini of sorts, also well known as a 1980’s shooter. However, we’re not going to pull the over-sweet flavor bomb, we’re going to make this as classic as it should be for real lemon drop flavor and texture.
This recipe really brings back the desire for a good citrus based cocktail. There is a lot of people that will make the lemon drop cocktail as a sticky mess of gross. There are many that will make the lemon drop martini as a huge sour bomb in your face. Then there is this recipe, which actually utilizes fine granulated sugar over simple syrup (or gross ass flavored vodka).
Sure, it’s an easy vodka recipe, but it’s a worthwhile use of your time as well. A great recipe design in this lemon drop martini build out, which can be seen here:
