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.
Really good and tasty too.. Mine was a little tart so next time I may cut down on the lemon juice. I will make this again for friends. Thanks denise!!
Yummy, I love tart so increased the lemon juice and decreased the sugar. Loved it sitting on the porch watching the world go by - thanks so much for a real winner and something differant from the sour apple martinis. As an update, continue to serve this to impress, specially in the spring when lemons bring the best of the season. This time sprinkled a pinch of lemon zest on the top for looks and loved it
These were a hit, but watch out. They can sneak up on you!
Simply delicious! :)
Best one I've found. I used Absolute Citron and it was very smooth.
This drink is perfect. Light, refreshing and delicious
