Meyer Lemon Drop
Meyer lemons are especially delicious, but any lemons will work for this recipe. You may substitute two teaspoons superfine sugar for the lemon syrup if desired.
- Sugar, for rim of glass
- Powdered yellow food coloring (optional)
- Lemon slice, for garnish
- 1/4 cup vodka
- 1 teaspoon Cointreau
- 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed Meyer lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon Lemon Syrup
Tint sugar with powdered yellow food color, if desired. Place sugar in a saucer. Moisten the rim of a martini glass with a lemon slice. Dip rim in sugar. In a cocktail shaker, combine vodka, Cointreau, lemon juice, and lemon syrup with ice; shake well. Strain into prepared glass.
