Jeff's Lemon Drop Recipe

Prep Time 5 minutes
Servings 1


  • 2 Oz Citrus Infused Vodka - Regular vodka will work too!
  • 1/2 Oz Triple Sec
  • 1 Oz Simple Syrup
  • 1 Oz Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice - About 1/2 lemon
  • 1 Lemon Wedge for Garnish - And to wet the rim of the glass
  • 2 Tbsp Fine White Sugar - Caster or Baking Sugar
  • Ice


  1. We use 'Martini' style glasses for our Lemon drops, but any glass will work just fine!


  2. On a plate, pour sugar in a circle about the width of the glass you will use.  Use the lemon wedge to wet the rim of the glass on both the inside and outside of the rim - About 1/8in wide.  Turn the glass upside down and place the rim into the sugar and move around to evenly coat.


  3. Fill a cocktail shaker half full with ice and add vodka, triple sec, lemon juice and simple syrup. Shake well and pour into the sugar lined glass.  


    Hint: Adding the vodka first will help keep the ice from sticking together in the shaker...


  4. Add a lemon wedge for garnish and enjoy!


    By the way... If you don't have fresh lemons, store bought lemon juice will work just fine.
