I like my Lemon Drops PLAIN. Don’t mix up that sugar or rim the glass PLEASE. I prefer mine as a shot for that very reason. We call these Girl Power shots in my house (it’s about the girls gathering around the bar and shooing the men off … amazing how they all just come out of the woodwork when they see females lining up the glasses) and I’m really excited to try and make them in a jello shot form very soon this summer!
The KEY to making a GOOD lemon drop is the chill factor. It has to be cold otherwise your throat will try to close up which will cause you to gasp, inhale the wrong way, and cough violently the remainder of the evening. Been there, done that and I can assure you, you DON’T want to do that!
I’ve also drank way too many of these a few times, so definitely pace yourself. YOU may not think your getting toasted, but all those around you will KNOW you are getting toasted. 🙂 Just saying!
Lemon Drops aka Girl Power Shots
4 shots of Citron Vodka … used to be an Absolut girl but then I met up with Svedka and have since converted!
1 lemon, cut into wedges
Small amount of white sugar
Dump the vodka into a shaker filled with ice. Put on lid and shake, shake shake. Let sit for a few seconds to continue chilling.
In meantime, offer up the participants wedges of lemon that are lightly sprinkled with sugar.
Pour the vodka into shot glasses, make a toast, slug it back, bite the lemon (and eat the sweet lemon flesh)
Repeat. Walk away 🙂
As always, we strongly recommend you not drink and drive. If you got teens, now is the time to have them driving. Cab it or just spend the night.
