When life gives you lemons… make Lemon Drops.
- 2 oz of fresh-squeezed lemon juice, strained
- 2 oz of vodka (I prefer Kettle One)
- Splash of Simple Syrup*
- Use lemon rind to rub around lip of martini glass. Dip glass onto plate of sugar to create sugar rim.
- Add lemon juice, vodka and simple syrup* to shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and pour into prepared martini glass.
*Simple syrup is easy to make. Combine 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar in a saucepan over medium high heat. Stirring frequently until sugar dissolves. Let cool.
