Lemon drop shot

This was a very good shot. It was our first time of making a lemon drop shot and boy was it good. We will be having another one in about 15mins or so. LOL
This is horrible!

1 part vodka to 1 part lemon juice? We thought that sounded like a bad combination, but OMG, that is the most sour, bitter tasting thing I have ever had. Stay away from this one!
YUMMY

Stayed at my friend's house in Manhattan. Hit up the bar, and he introduced me to the "Lemon Drop". Def. my favorite shot... had a few too many!!!

Another way to do them

posted by teryn @ 01:08PM, 2/09/07

You can have a shot of vodka then bite into a lemon wedge covered in sugar. This way is yummy as well.

A real lemon drop shot

Freeze Ketel One vodka. Slice some lemons and get a cup of sugar. Pour the frozen vodka in a shot glass. Dip a lemon wedge in the sugar. After drinking the shot, take a bit out of the lemon. Yummie!
First shot ever

Lemon drop shot

Oh my god it was good ! This drink saves you a lot of money instead of going to the bar. The lemon drop was very tasty and sweet and went down smooth. I'm also having another one as soon as i'm done typing.

Try this twist

posted by Kate @ 11:39AM, 4/20/07

If you use Black Cherry flavored vodka instead of regular it is also amazing. Take the shot of cherry vodka and then eat a lemon wedge that has been dipped in sugar! Enjoy!
Mmmmm

Yum! I love the sour/sweet aspect.
Great

posted by Friedrich @ 01:48AM, 5/02/07

I use lemon liqueur, instead of lemon juice, fresh squeezed lemons and use any old glass, rimmed with sugar.

What's a sugar cube look like?

posted by erwnerve @ 10:28PM, 8/11/07

This tasted BAD when I followed the recipe, although I loved it when I ordered it at the bar. It was too sour and too strong. I added more sugar to make it better but the sugar just settles at the bottom. I'm going to have to experiment with this to make it work.
Sweeet

This stuff was awesome, though i got pretty trashed from it. Probably because i was taking vodka shots and chasing with a lemon wedge..
Martini Form

posted by poisonberry @ 10:59AM, 9/30/07

We make this in a glass with simple syrup and add crushed Lemon Head candies to the rim rather than just normal sugar. Shake with ice and strain.

2 oz Citris Vodka
1 oz Simple Syrup
1/2 oz lemon juice
Garnish with a lemon twist
Wonderful!

posted by rmb @ 02:14PM, 10/11/07

Add some mint leaves when you make it and enjoy and use apple vodka.

I get them from time to time, every bar I have went to they are always easy to get down, alittle sour after taste but nothing serious.
