The World's Best Lemon Drops...

... are made by my husband, Steve.  Here is his recipe, tried and true:

- 1 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice (about a whole lemon per drink)
- 1 oz orange liquor (Triple Sec or Cointreau)
- 1 oz vodka
- 1 teaspoon of sugar

While it is a little extra work, using freshly squeezed lemon juice is the secret to a great Lemon Drop. Combine the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice, and shake.  Use the inside of the squeezed lemon to wipe around the rim of a martini glass, and then dip the glass into granulated sugar, to create the sugary ring on the glass. Pour the chilled drink into glass. Enjoy!

This drink has pink and purple granulated sugar on the rim.

It is such a lovely addition to any gathering, and easy to make.  I hope you will try to make this great drink, too! Aloha.
