In less than 5 minutes, you can have a lemon drop shot that not only goes down easy but tastes like your favorite sour candy. With only 3 ingredients, what more could you ask for in a shot?

Here's what you'll need...

You'll Need:

– 2 tablespoons granulated sugar for garnish (optional) – 3 ounces vodka – 2.5 ounces freshly squeezed lemon juice – 2 ounces simple syrup – lemon wedges for garnish (optional)


Add 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar to a shallow plate. Run a lemon wedge along the rim of four shot glasses.


Dip the rim of the glass into sugar, turning the glass as you go to ensure an even coating.


Add vodka, lemon juice, and simple syrup to a cocktail shaker filled partway with ice. Shake vigorously until chilled, about 15 seconds.


Strain shots with a hawthorne strainer into the prepared shot glasses.


Optionally, garnish each shot with a lemon wedge.
