Meyer Lemon Drop

Meyer Lemon Drop

This delightful cocktail will ward off your cold weather colds and bring some post-holiday cheer.  It relies on a simple ratio of 3-2-1 (three parts vodka, two parts Meyer lemon juice, one part superfine sugar), so however you measure your ingredients, be it cups or tablespoons, this ratio is a constant.

Ingredients

To make four cocktails:

1 cup vodka

2/3 cup Meyer lemon juice (2-3 lemons)

1/3 cup superfine sugar

 

Preparation

If you don’t have superfine sugar left over from your holiday baking, don’t worry.  You can make it easily, but you do want to use it so that the sugar dissolves completely.  Put a cup of sugar in your food processor, and process for 1-2 minutes and voila, superfine sugar.  Measure your portion after the processing.  Put the three ingredients in a sealed container (like a mason jar) and shake until the sugar dissolves.  Then add ice and shake again until your drink is chilled.  Serve immediately with a lemon wedge and if you like, a lemon sugared rim!
