Cheers from Rhode Island! We asked YOU to share some of your favorite cocktails for a chance to be featured, and today we are highlighting Plant Nite Providence Rhode Island customer, Diane Pike. Diane’s favorite cocktail is The Lemon Drop!
Light, refreshing, and delightfully tart, The Lemon Drop is a summer must have. So we’re making it for you today. This cocktail is simple to make, but the freshly squeezed lemonade and the sugared rim of your glass will have your friends calling you a master mixologist. So, how do you make it? We’ll show you!
For this cocktail you will need:
- Triple Sec
Step one: add your liquors
First, take a shaker and fill it with ice. Then, add in four ounces of vodka, and two ounces of Triple Sec to the shaker.
Step two: lemonade
Now, squeeze enough lemons to yield a cup of lemon juice and add it to your shaker. You can also use pre-squeezed lemon juice or lemonade.
Step three: sugar
Lemon juice is quite tart, so add a little sure to help neutralize the sharpness. If you like your cocktails sweet, use more sugar. If you love your cocktails mouth-puckering, use less!
Once all of the ingredients are inside the shaker, shake it until a light frost begins to form on the outside.
Step four: finishing touches
The Lemon Drop comes served in a chilled glass with a sugar rim. Use a piece of lemon to wet the edge and then dip it in sugar.
All that’s left to do is to pour your cocktail into some glasses and enjoy!
