Lemon Drop Cocktail

Using fresh lemon juice instead of citrus-infused vodka keeps this cocktail fresh and light.

Serves: 2 Total Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients


  • Fine sugar, for rimming the glass
  • 1 thin lemon wedge
  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce Simple Syrup
  • Ice
  • Lemon twist, for garnish


Instructions

1

Place a cocktail glass in the freezer to chill.

2

Pour enough sugar on a small plate to cover.

3

Rub the lemon wedge on the outside rim of the chilled glass. Holding the glass at a 45-degree angle, dip the outside rim in the sugar, rotating as you do, so the entire rim is coated with sugar. (Avoid getting any sugar inside the glass.)

4

Place the vodka, lemon juice, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker and fill halfway with ice. Shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker is frosted. Strain into the sugar-rimmed glass and garnish with the lemon twist.
