    This drink is made by the pitcher and is soooo good. I am such a lemon freak. Has a 4 hour chill time.

      I love lemons and I love this cocktail !!! Rather than rimming my glass with sugar, I broke up lemon Jolly Ranchers in a bag with a hammer. To get the pieces the consistancy of sugar, I pulsed them in the food processor. I've done this with all flavors of J.R.'s to use on many different drink recipes( my favorite is whatermelon on a watermelon martini). Happy imbibing!

      Wow! I love Lemon Drops and these were really good, but I must be a light weight. I made them with 3 cups of Vodka the first time, but they were a little to potent. The second time I made these I backed it off to 2 1/2 cups and they were perfect. I can't imagine what they would be like with 4 cups of vodka!
