How to make lemon drop

  1. Cool your ingredients: Start by cooling the vodka, fresh lemon juice, and simple syrup. Chilling these ingredients beforehand ensures your shot is refreshingly cold.
  2. Preparing the glass: Get a cold cup and decorate it with sugar. To do this, dip the rim of the cup in water or lemon juice and then in a small plate of sugar. Gently swirl the glass to ensure an even sugar coating.
  3. Cocktail mix: In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine the vodka, lemon juice and simple syrup.
  4. Shake vigorously: Close the shaker and shake vigorously for about 10 seconds. This cooling process also helps thin out the mixture a bit, balancing the flavors.
  5. Filter and serveCarefully filter the mixture from the blender into your cup prepared with sugar.
  6. Served with a slice of candied lemon. Part of the experience of this shot is to chase the shot by biting into a piece of candied lemon. It’s delicious and the best part of the experience, so don’t miss it!

Tips for making

  • Try flavored vodka. If you want to change up your flavor profile a bit, try substituting different flavored vodkas or even try a citrus vodka for a more intense experience.
  • Infuse the sugar with grated lemon peel for a greater sensory experience (our sense of smell is closely linked to our sense of taste).
  • Try the juice of half a lemon and half a lime for a fun variation.

History of Lemon Drop

The history of the Lemon Drop Shot is closely tied to the Lemon Drop Martini, a classic cocktail that emerged during the 1970s. The Lemon Drop Martini, known for its vibrant blend of vodka, lemon juice and sugar, served as the inspiration for the shot recipe.
