Two weeks ago, the cocktail was a Lemon Drop. I'd never had one before, but was assured by those who know, that it would be a good one to try. I went with this recipe.
My ingredients, modified only slightly:
1 1/2 ounces vodka
1/2 ounce orange liqueur (Triple Sec)
1 teaspoon sugar
3/4 ounce freshly-squeezed lemon juice
Sugar for dipping
Twisted peel of lemon
Last week's drink was a Shamrocker. The recipe was from here.
Since no one in my house is a Tequila fan, I modified it to use vodka instead.
- 1 part vodka
- 1 part melon liqueur
- 1/2 part triple sec
- Splash of orange juice
Not my favorite. Maybe it would have been better with the tequila. However, it's really pretty and I used my new glasses.
