Story about Lemon Drop Shot

Let's talk about our little friend, the Lemon Drop Shot. This isn't just your average shot, folks. Legend has it that it came to life in the slick '70s, right in the heart of San Francisco. It's a real classic!

The taste? The Lemon Drop Shot has this incredibly smooth vodka called Absolut Citron, which gives it a lip-smacking citrusy edge. Add a punch of tart with some fresh lemon juice and sweeten things up by throwing in a dash of simple syrup. And the best part is the finishing fancy touch– a sugared rim and a zesty lemon wedge. Cute, right? Believe us when we say this shot is a rollercoaster ride for your taste buds.

FAQ
Q: Can you make a lemon drop with tequila?
A: Well, sure thing, partner! Tequila will give it a different personality, but hey, variety is the spice of life, right?

Q: Vodka or Lemon Vodka?
A: Traditionally, Lemon Drops are made with regular vodka, but we like to use Absolut Citron to further amplify the citrus notes.

Q: Are there any flavor variations?
A: Heck, yes! Feel free to play around. Swap out the lemon for other citrus fruits, or add a splash of your favorite fruit juice. Alternatively, you could try using other flavored Vodkas like Absolut Raspberri, Absolut Mango or even Absolut Peppar to make it your own! Don’t be afraid to experiment!
