Super delicious! I was trying to duplicate a Lemon Drop cocktail that I had at a restaurant recently, and this came pretty close. As written it was a little too tart for me, so I added one ounce of simple syrup which made it just right. Heading back to the kitchen to make another!

The perfect Lemon Drop! I've tried many different recipes but this is the only one that comes out exactly perfect every time. Just like the professional bartenders make.

Amazingly good lemon drop! We added extra sugar to balance the tart and shook the drink with lots of ice for a couple of min to dilute it just a bit. It does make 2 smallish drinks, so either serve in mini martini glasses or double the recipe. Thanks Denise for a wonderful recipe! Update - Oops, forgot to rate it!

My personal mixologist (our neighbor) makes a very similar Lemon Drop recipe. His is slightly tastier (he uses simple syrup, rims with crushed lemon heads and garnishes with a lemon wedge), but this is a fabulous substitute when he is not home! Thanks for the posting.

Best one I've found. I used Absolute Citron and it was very smooth.

Made some last minute plans to have a couple girls over last night for a drink... or two. I had plenty of beverage choices, but was worried about having mixers. Someone said, "A martini sounds good." so I searched. I had lemons on hand and have always loved the lemon drop, so I made up three of them, and then a very short time later three more. :) I didn't think they were too tart at all, but I love citrus flavors. Made exactly as directed. Thanks for posting, Denise!
