I have always been a fan of a good lemon drop cocktail, but they can be pretty strong... and sometimes too sweet. I can't drink like I used to in my younger days but still enjoy having a nice, cold cocktail with my husband or girlfriends. Recently, in Maui, us girls made some wonderful "lady drinks". My friend coined that term meaning 'not meant to get you smashed'!! After returning home, I had some limes and threw this lime drop cocktail together on a warm evening and it was SO good!! It's only a few ingredients and is so light and refreshing. You could serve it as the recipe states above and serve it in a pretty martini glass, but I like to pour it over ice and add a little splash of soda water.... it's a very proper "lady drink". I think my friend would approve! GREAT summer cocktail... Enjoy!
- 1 oz vodka
- 1 oz fresh lime juice
- 1 oz pure cane simple syrup (adjust to your liking)... I'm going to try to make my own out of honey soon, I'll comment on this if it works!
Add all ingredients to an shaker filled halfway with ice. SHAKE WELL. Pour. Sip. Smile.
