Learn how to make a lemon drop from the bartenders at Barcelona Bar NYC in this Howcast video.


Alright, my responsible shot-taking 21-year-old friends. Next up on the list is the Lemon Drop. Good for virtually everybody because it's got a little punch and it's very sweet too.

Start off grab your shaker and a scoop of ice. Throw it in your shaker. Next up we want some sort of lemon flavored vodka. Absolute Citron is what we use here. Do a full one-and-a-half-ounce pour, one-and-a-half-ounce count. Grab your mixing glasses. It's that simple guys. You can't mess this one up.

Give it a good shake and it's ready to go. Then just strain it into a shot glass however if you have the fancy bar tools, feel free to use those. If not, just do it like that. Set these things aside, grab yourself a lemon wedge, grab a little sugar, pour the sugar on top like that. Take the lemon wedge and put it on top of the shot like that, and then when you consume it, you want to just take the shot and then lemon afterwards and you'll have that nice lemony flavor in your mouth, ready to enjoy the next one. Lemon Drop.
