Limoncello Drop Booze

Lemon Drops are typically made with Vodka, lemon juice and sugar. Triple Sec is often added for depth of flavor and a little more sweet. The Limoncello Drop on the other hand, uses limoncello in place of sugar and along with the orange liqueur, Grand Marnier, we’ve got the sweet, citrus part covered.

The Limoncello Drop

Ingredients:
1 oz Vodka
1 oz Limoncello
1 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Grand Marnier

Garnish:
lemon peel
superfine sugar and lemon wedge to rim glass

To sugar the rim of your cocktail glass, take a freshly cut lemon wedge and slice the middle. Slip the wedge over the rim of the glass where you’ve cut the lemon, and sweep around the entire top of the glass until it is well coated. Gently dip the glass upside down into a saucer filled with sugar until just the tip of the glass is coated.

Directions:
Shake all ingredients over ice until the outside tin is frosted over. Strain into a well chilled, sugar-rimmed cocktail glass. Add a lemon twist.
