Cocktail Quickie: The Lemon Drop

lemon dropHere’s a girlie drink that works equally well for guys. A flavored martini in disguise, the Lemon Drop gets its pucker from citrus and its sweet from superfine sugar. Mix up a batch and watch the world turn candy colors.

Ingredients for 1 drink:

1 1/2 ounces frozen vodka
1 teaspoon superfine sugar
¾-1 ounce freshly sqeezed lemon juice
A couple of ice cubes
½ ounce triple sec (optional)

Place the vodka, triple sec (if you are using), sugar and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker with some ice cubes and shake for up to 20 seconds. If you’d like, you can run a lemon rind around the rim of your glass and/or chill your glasses. Pour shaken mixture into glasses and serve.
