Lemon Drop Cocktail Recipe

The sweet tart taste of a lemon drop cocktail is light and refreshing on a hot summer day. It’s like lemonade for grownups.

I’ve got another summer sipper for you today. The lemon drop cocktail. Yeah, I know this is more commonly served as a shot, but it’s also a full blow cocktail you can take your time sipping and not just something to throw back and slam the shot glass on the bar.

Of course, the lemon drop is loaded with lemon juice (as you would expect). It’s also got a little triple sec in it to cut the acidity of the lemon and then, of course, that sugared rim for the sweet taste.

I like making these when I have a bunch of people over because I can either make up a big batch of them or make them individually. To make the cocktail is pretty simple and straight forward, so I don’t feel like I’m missing out on the party if I’m playing bartender.
