Meyer Lemon Drop
Sit back and relax with an adult beverage made from sweet/tart Meyer lemons and vodka.
- 1 cup vodka
- 2/3 cup Meyer lemon juice (2-3 lemons)
- 1/3 cup superfine sugar
This delightful cocktail will ward off your cold-weather blues. 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.
If you don’t have superfine sugar leftover from your holiday baking, don’t worry. You can make it easier, 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 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!
