My friend, Dorothy, loves lemon drops. Since it was her birthday last night, she decided to drop by with a group of friends and have her husband, Fred, ¬†make lemon drops for the whole group. This is not a drink for the faint of heart!
So, I pulled out some cheese and crackers and we had ourselves an impromptu ¬†party.
1 1/2 oz Vodka
1/2 oz. Triple Sec
1 tsp superfine sugar
3/4 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice.
Mix the vodka, triple sec, sugar and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker half filled with ice cubes.
Shake well to make sure sugar is blended.
Pour strained liquor into a sugar rimmed martini glass and garnish with a twisted peel of lemon.
NOTE: If you want a sugar rimmed glass, just take a lemon wedge, rub the drinking surface to barely moist on the surface of the glass, and dip the glass into sugar.
Serve in a martini cocktail glass. A fresh garnish of mint is also colorful.
