Lemon Drop Cocktails

One of our favorite ways to use up all these lemons that I zested for scones was to make a few Lemon Drop cocktails – we either have it straight up in a martini glass or over ice in a tumbler glass. My lemon drop recipe is pretty simple and can be adjusted according to taste.

6 oz vodka
3 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 oz Triple Sec or orange flavored liquor (Grand Marnier)
1 tablespoon sugar

  • Chill a couple martini glasses in the freezer.
  • Pour the lemon juice, vodka and triple sec into a shaker.
  • Add a handful of ice cubes and shake vigorously.
  • Use the lemon wedges to moisten the glasses and coat with sugar.
  • Strain the lemon vodka mixture into the glass.
