I'm a bartender and i have a special recipe for lemon drops, this particular recipe will leave you with a pursed face and no buzz. To make a GREAT lemon drop martini, you need to first fill your mixing tin with 8 oz of ice, you need 2 oz. of (preferrably) citrus vodka, squeeze 2 lemon wedges for natural juice and drop wedges into shaker, add 1/2 oz. of cointreu or another citrus liquer, 1 oz. of lemon juice, and then 2 individual packets or 3 teaspoons of sugar. The trick to getting a PERFECT lemon drop is to shake the tin a lot, you want to mix the sugar up into the liquid, not having it settle at the bottom of the tin. Strain the ice and lemon wedges and enjoy a PERFECT lemon drop. My recipe will deffinitely impress your guests and keep everyone having an awesome time. Good luck...-18 Feb 2009

One of my favorite shots when I go out! I used about equal parts lemon and vodka and a little more sugar. The way I made it it was a good sipping cocktail as well. Obviously a good vodka is key - I prefer belvedere. Fine baking sugar disolves very quickly in the martinin shaker when you make tis as well. I like to cut lemon wedges and then coat them in sugar so people can bite into them after they take a drink. Thanks!-03 Aug 2007

5 Cocktails Made with Limoncello: The Ultimate Summer Liqueur

Limoncello, the traditional Italian vodka, is a staple in the Mediterranean region for good great reason. It's sourced from the zest of lemons but combined with simple syrup for a sugary sweet kick that's perfect for dessert. It's essentially all you need to sip on days and nights where you're gagging at the thought of a heavy beer. Here, our favorite ways to prepare the citrusy drink, from the original Italian recipe to a syrup-heavy happy hour marg.

Ingredients:

1 (750-ml) Bottle 80-Proof or 100-Proof Vodka

Using a vegetable peeler, remove the peel from the lemons in long strips (reserve the lemons for another use). Using a small sharp knife, trim away the white pith from the lemon peels discard the pith. Place the lemon peels in a 2-quart pitcher. Pour the vodka over the peels and cover with plastic wrap. Steep the lemon peels in the vodka for 4 days at room temperature.

Stir the water and sugar in a large saucepan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Cool completely. Pour the sugar syrup over the vodka mixture. Cover and let stand at room temperature overnight. Strain the limoncello through a mesh strainer. Discard the peels. Transfer the limoncello to bottles. Seal the bottles and refrigerate until cold, at least 4 hours and up to 1 month.

Like a sweet and salty, yet super boozy lemonade.

Ingredients:

2 oz. Frozen Limeade Concentrate or Lemonade Concentrate

1 Lemon- zest, Yellow Coarse Sugar, and Margarita Salt for the rim

Combine coarse sugar, margarita salt, and lemon zest in a shallow bowl. Rub the rim of a cocktail glass with a half slice of lemon. Turn the lemon-rubbed glass upside down and dip the rim into the salt mixture. Set the glass upright to let dry a couple of minutes. Pour crushed ice into a cocktail shaker. Pour all drink ingredients over the ice, tightly cover, and shake for 30 seconds. Pour into prepared glasses.

Add a splash of Triple Sec or orange liqueur if you want to amp up the flavor.

Ingredients:

Fill cocktail shaker halfway through with fresh ice. Add vodka, limoncello, and lime juice to the shaker and shake vigorously. Strain cocktail into martini glass. Garnish with a lemon twist and serve.

Ingredients:

Fill a glass with ice, Corazón Tequila, and Caravella Limoncello. Top with grapefruit soda. Rim with salt if desired, and garnish with a grapefruit slice and sprig of thyme.

The key to the best lemon drop martini is balancing sour and sweet. This is one of our absolute favorite cocktails to make at home. Read on below to see our tips for making it.

There are four things to keep in mind when making lemon drop martinis at home.

Use Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice. The juice from a bottle just won’t cut it here. For one cocktail, you will need 1 ounce of lemon juice or the juice from half a large lemon.

Use quality vodka. Since this is a martini, there’s quite a bit of vodka called for. You don’t need to go straight to the top shelf, but choose a vodka that’s smooth. A few of our favorites are Kettle One, Stolichnaya (Stoli), and Tito’s.

Everything should be really cold. A lukewarm martini is no fun, so be sure to shake the heck out of it — if you want to go the extra mile, chill the martini glasses, too.

Add a lemon sugar rim. You’ve probably noticed rim sugar sold at the store. They are a great idea, but honestly, much easier to make at home yourself. To make our lemon drops extra special, we add a simple lemon sugar rim to our glasses. You could certainly stick with plain sugar, but since you’ve already bought the lemons for the fresh lemon juice, you might as well whip up this zesty sugar, right? To make it, rub the zest of one lemon into granulated sugar. Easy!

One more thing — you’ll need simple syrup for this. You can buy simple syrup at the store for convenience, but it’s really easy to make at home.

Here’s our step-by-step instructions for how to make simple sugar. We made it in our recipe video, too — it only takes a few minutes.

10 Quick & Easy Vodka Cocktail Recipes

While some stick to the stigma that cocktails are fruity drinks only to be enjoyed by the fairer sex, we think vodka is a hard-hitting spirit that deserves to be enjoyed by the more masculine type too! Whether you are hosting a cocktail party or simply want to find a recipe that tantalizes your taste buds and helps you to wind down at the end of a long day – we’ve done our research and gathered a list of the 10 more popular vodka mixes that are super easy to make and will surely serve their purpose.

Before we start the party, we suggest you equip yourselves with a shaker, stirrer and some top quality bottles of Vodka – yes, we said bottle”S” – you might find yourself wanting to try out each and every one of these delicious recipes!

1. The Screwdriver

With such a manly name, we couldn’t resist adding this one to the top of the list! It’s not just the name that makes this drink appealing, however. If you enjoy a burst of citrus with a touch of bitters, then we have an inkling that this very basic cocktail will knock your socks off with flavour. This drink is perfect for those who like to indulge in brunch-time beverages that come with a kick and it is also ideal to cool down with after a hard session at the gym when some iced refreshments are in order.

Ingredients: A large orange (or two smaller oranges), one clementine, ice cubes, vodka and Angostura bitters.

Directions: This recipe is for one serving only and takes about 10 minutes, if not less, to prepare. Freshly squeeze your orange/s and clementine (removing any pips, of course) and set aside. Add a few ice cubes (check our ice cube trays review for some amazing options) to your glass and pour in 50ml of vodka. Add your citrus juices and then gently combine the liquids using a cocktail stirrer. Add a few dashes of Angostura bitters (or bitters of your choice) and compliment the drink with a wedge of orange placed onto the rim of your glass.

2. The Caipirovska

While we agree that “caipir-ovska” is quite the mouthful to pronounce, the drink itself is quite simple and straightforward. Don’t let the very basic ingredients fool you, however, as the end result is a superbly refreshing drink that comes with a delightful lemony twist. We recommend this drink for sweltering summer days when you are too hot and bothered to exert yourself over a drink that requires more effort.

Ingredients: One lime, granulated white sugar, crushed ice, vodka.

Directions: Prep time for this drink is less than 5 minutes and this recipe serves one. Start by getting yourself a nice and sturdy tumbler and add pieces of the chopped lime so that they sit at the bottom. Sprinkle two teaspoons of sugar over the lime pieces and then crush these two ingredients together using a muddler or pestle. Top up to with crushed ice (about midway) and then pour in 50 ml vodka. Stir gently and serve immediately for the best-tasting experience.

3. Bloody Mary

While a Bloody Mary is not everyone’s go-to drink and the taste only appeals to a select few, we still think it should make the list for its easy recipe and unique flavour. Commonly served as a morning drink, many regard this cocktail as being the ideal cure for hangovers and the somewhat savoury ingredients have a perfect way of complimenting a plateful of greasy breakfast foods too!

Ingredients: Ice, tomato juice, vodka, lemon juice, sweet sherry, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, salt, pepper, celery and fennel seeds (which are optional).

Directions: This recipe is for one serving only and will take between 5 – 10 minutes to make (depending on how fresh you want your ingredients to be). Start by adding a handful of ice blocks to a tall glass. Pour in 125ml tomato juice (freshly made in a juicer or blender, or from a bottle) and 5ml vodka. Add a tablespoon of sweet sherry, a dash of Worcestershire sauce and salt and pepper to taste. Add a sprinkle of fennel seeds if you find their taste appealing. Garnish with a celery stick and a wedge of lemon.

4. Moscow Mule

This mule definitely comes with a kick! A crisp drink that fizzes with flavour, this ginger beer inspired cocktail is an ideal “welcome home drink” that will help you to wind down after a tedious day’s work. A spicy cocktail that bites back, the Moscow Mule perfectly pairs the clear spirit with the tang of ginger for a sharp, clean taste. Add a hint of lime if you don’t mind a touch of citrus. This drink requires very little prep work and also does not require the addition of other costly spirits and blends.

Ingredients: Vodka, ginger beer, crushed ice, ginger bitters and a slice of lime.

Directions: For this bubbly cocktail we start with the main attraction – the vodka! Add 50ml vodka to your tumbler and then add a handful of crushed ice. Fill your glass to the brim with ginger beer and stir ever so gently to avoid losing the bubbles. Add a few dashes of ginger bitters for taste and garnish with a wedge or slice of lime. This recipe serves one and can be whipped up in a minute! And it is perfect for beer lovers.

5. Vodka Tonic

Sometimes the simple things in life are all we need. This Vodka Tonic comes without all the frills yet still remains a popular drink, especially among men. This cocktail is a perfect dinner companion because the sugarless tonic water is an ideal palate cleanser and washes meals down smoothly – with a kickback, of course. Easy on the pocket as well as on the tongue, this is a standard drink request at any well-stocked bar.

Ingredients: Vodka, tonic water, ice cubes and a lime.

Directions: Probably the easiest recipe on the list, a vodka tonic can be rustled up in less than a minute with very little effort. Simply top your highball glass up midway with ice, add a splash of lime and then pour in 60ml vodka. Top up with tonic water until the liquid reaches the brim. Stir gently and garnish your drink with a thinly sliced piece of lime.

6. Appletini

While a good old-fashioned Martini is just as scrumptious, we love this recipe for its fresh and fruity taste that comes with just a subtle kick of vodka. Invigorating in colour and a tickle to your taste buds, this cocktail is perfect for pool parties, late night business meetings and, well, for just because – they do say an apple a day keeps the doctor away!

Ingredients: green apple Schnapps, vodka, an apple, lemon or bottled lemon juice.

Directions: Pour 50ml vodka, 30ml apple Schnapps and 40ml lemon juice (freshly squeezed or bottled) into a cocktail shaker and add a handful of ice cubes. Shake ingredients together well and then strain the liquid into a martini glass. Garnish with a slice of apple! With less than 5 minutes prep time, this is a super quick recipe that serves one.

7. Cosmopolitan

Men DO, in fact, drink pink drinks! Who says the ladies get to have all the fun? Mostly referred to as the “cosmo,” you can mix the ingredients in this cocktail to suit your own taste preferences – so if you’re not a huge fruity fan, there’s still a chance you’ll enjoy this mix if you tweak the recipe to suit your taste buds. If you like your drinks sweet, then pour more cranberry. If you prefer the bitter taste of vodka, add a just a dash of cranberry juice for colour – it’s pretty superb either way!

Ingredients: Cointreau orange liqueur, mandarin vodka, cranberry juice, lime juice and an orange.

Directions: Grab a shaker and pour in 50ml of your mandarin vodka. Add one tablespoon of the orange liqueur, one tablespoon of lime juice and 50ml cranberry juice. Top the shaker up with ice and then put some elbow grease into shaking up a storm. Strain the liquid into a cosmo glass and garnish with a twisted slice or rind of an orange. The recipe serves one and takes about 3-5 minutes to prepare. Like we mentioned above, you can add less cranberry juice if you prefer your drink to be a little less on the sweet side.

8. Lemon Drop Martini

Vodka is the ideal spirit for stirring up sweet martinis and the Lemon Drop makes the list for being a drink that perfectly blends sweet and sour for a tantalising tasting experience. When it comes to this cocktail in particular, we strongly suggest you stick to fresh ingredients and while we think our recipe hits the spot, you might want to play around with the lemon and syrup so that you can find your own perfect blend of sweet and sour.

Ingredients: Vodka, lemon juice (preferably freshly squeezed), ice cubes, and white sugar.

Directions: This is one of those drinks where sugaring the rim of your glass will not only look attractive but will certainly compliment the flavour of the cocktail too – so we suggest that you do this as your starting point. Next, you can add 50mls of vodka, 25ml of lemon juice, 5ml of syrup and a handful of ice cubes to your shaker. Shake ingredients together well and then carefully pour the contents into your glass (try not to let it touch your sugared rim). Garnish with a twisted lemon rind. With just 5 minutes of prep time, this delectable recipe serves one.

9. Sex On The Beach

A classic cocktail that never seizes to lose its popularity (mostly because of its’ namesake). As one of the best drinks for summertime fun, a “Sex on the Beach” is always a hit. This cocktail oozes fruity flavours and if the kick of vodka doesn’t get you into good spirits, then the bright colours of the drink surely will! Perfect for pool parties, after-work drinks or to add a touch of spring to a winter’s day! This mix of fruits and spirits does require some extra effort and the ingredients can add up – but it’s totally worth it!

Ingredients: Vodka, Peach Schnapps, creme de cassis, pineapple juice (or orange juice), cranberry juice, an orange slice, maraschino cherries and ice cubes.

Directions: With just 5-10 minutes of preparation, you’ll be sipping on this delightful drink in no time! Pour 45ml vodka, 25ml peach schnapps (if you have a soda maker, you can make it yourself), 15ml creme de cassis, 60ml pineapple juice (or orange juice), and 60ml cranberry juice into a cocktail shaker. Add a handful of ice cubes. Shake the ingredients together well and then strain the mix into a highball glass. Garnish with an orange slice and maraschino cherries.

10. Harvey Wallbanger

Another drink with a weird name. We loved the way the name rolled off our tongue so much that we simply had to give the drink itself a taste – and it was amaZING! A tad similar to the Screwdriver, this cocktail is unique in that it uses a vanilla-spiced liqueur called Galliano L’Autentico to give it an original flavour and subtle texture. The vanilla liqueur is used as a float on top of the vodka and orange juice mix. Perfect for late morning breakfasts or as a sundowner, the Harvey Wallbanger is a citrus delight that smells as divine as it tastes!

Ingredients: Vodka, orange juice, Galliano L’Autentico, ice cubes, orange slice and maraschino cherries.

Directions: Just like the rest of our cocktails on the list, the Harvey Wallbanger can be whipped up in less than 10 minutes. Here’s how you do it: pour 45mls of vodka into a tall glass along with 120ml orange juice – add a few ice cubes. Layer the Galliano on top by pouring it ever so slowly over the back of a tablespoon. Garnish with a slice of orange and one or two cherries. Mmhmm!
