A classic lemon cocktail recipe perfect for using up fresh lemons. This Lemon Drop Cocktail is a sweet and tart cocktail perfect for a ladies’ night or after dinner cocktails. 

As 70’s fashion and decor makes its come back with retro side tables and all things tassels, crochet, lace, and bell-bottoms, we would be remiss to miss out on some of the best contributions from the 70’s: inventive cocktails.

RELATED: Try our for a refreshing summer treat!

The lemon drop cocktail is one of the best mainstays from the 1970s when it was invented in a singles “fern bar” – classically decorated with wooden paneling, fake Tiffany’s lamps, and yes, lots of overgrown ferns. It’s a riff on a classic martini and is still perfect for those who want a strong cocktail, but don’t really have a taste for alcohol.

This lemon drop cocktail recipe reminds me of sour candy, it’s got a perfect sweet-pucker effect, especially when you add the sugared rib .

This is definitely a dessert cocktail, as it’s a bit too sweet to pair with a meal, but it is perfect for sipping on with friends – especially in the summer.

If you need a spicy lemon cocktail to serve alongside as a fun alternative, my would be the perfect addition to a Sweet n ‘Spicy cocktail duo.

How to Make a Lemon Drop Cocktail

- First, sugar the rim of your glass. You can use simple syrup to attach the sugar to the rim or water. It’s a personal preference. Place the sanding sugar in a shallow dish big enough to fit the mouth of your glass in.

- Wet the edges of the glasses and then immediately dip the edge into the sanding sugar, rotating to coat the edge completely. Set aside.

- In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add the remaining ingredients. Attach lid and shake well.

- Divide the lemon drop cocktail between your glasses.

- Zest or cut two small strips of lemon skin from your lemon, and then twist well. I find a chopstick is great for helping get a nice spiral, but you can just twist with your fingers. Garnish the glass with the lemon twist and serve.
