Drop it Like it's HOT!

So I have never been a big fan of the classic Lemon Drop Cocktail...A few years back I was asked to design one and spent weeks with my lips puckered trying to find a combination I actually enjoyed...I blame all those little lines around my lips on this gig...

So yesterday I was asked by some FABULOUS women if I could share a good Lemon drop recipe...

This is my version of a Lemon Drop...Cheers

The Deeva Drop...

2 ounces Vanilla Vodka
raw sugar
4 fresh lemons

Take 1 tsp of raw sugar and muddle with Vanilla Vodka.
Squeeze the juice from the lemons into a shaker full of ice and add the Vodka sugar mixture.

Shake REALLY well, give both arms a try, this qualifies as an upper body workout so you can skip the gym.

Rim your glass with the raw sugar and serve your cocktail on or off the rocks. Garnish with some lemon zest.

If you can't find Vanilla Vodka use 1 ounce of regular Vodka and 1 ounce of Vanilla Liqueur. The Vanilla gives the cocktail a nice smoothness.

Hope you enjoy sure to take a pic and let me know how you enjoyed it.

Wow Dee this is fantastic! I love love love it and heading to LCBO first thing tomorrow (well, maybe not first thing since it may look like I'm a little desperate!) to get Vanilla Vodka.

You truly have a gift when it comes to the Cocktails.

I'm so touched you wrote this. Thank you. xo Jo

I don't like lemon drops either, but this sounds like a must-try! I always wondered what one did with vanilla vodka! Thx!
