The lemon drop is a classic vodka cocktail that deserves an award for versatility. This drink can easily be elevated by combining various fruits and even herbs. Blackberry, Huckleberry, Raspberry, Strawberry, Watermelon, Rosemary, Sage can all play a part in enlivening this classic. My all time favorite is the Blueberry lemon drop.
.5oz Simple Syrup
.5oz Lemon Juice
2 lemon slices
In your shaker add the lemon wedges and blueberries and use your muddler to express the juices out. Firm pressure does the job no need to over assert your dominance. The fresh fruit gives it a bright fresh clean flavor. Add the Citrus Vodka, Simple, Limoncello and lemon juice. Fill half way with ice and give it a hard shake till chilled. Double strain into a martini glass to remove any pulp or seeds and garnish with sugar rolled blueberries on a cocktail pick.
