Lemon Drop Shot Recipe

Lemon drops have to be one of the most fun ways to enjoy a few drinks. With rim lined with sugar, they’re sweet and soft on the palette.

They’re also super simple to make so learning how to mix up a few for friends or customers shouldn’t take more than one or two attempts to perfect the recipe.

Beware of the high sugar content. After only a few, that sweet taste you enjoyed at the start can really start to get to you.
