Make it with Pinnacle Whipped Vodka and it tastes like Key Lime Pie. Serve with a lime garnish.

My version is simple, and refreshing alternative to classic martini:
* 3 ozs Citrus Flavored Vodka
* 1 ozs lemon juice
* 1/2 ozs Simple Syrup

This recipe with triple sec is worth trying.

Did you try and compare? What's the verdict?

Can also be made as Lime Drop. That's our summer porch sipper of choice here in Minnesooooota.

I like it either way but lime drop is good!

I add 1oz of Limoncello to this recipe for that extra lemony zing!

It’s a good recipe to start with and to play with to make it your own.
I used Watkins Lemon Extract on the rim to set the sugar. Those looking for a bit of a citrus kick may want to try it.

I make Lemon Drops by the pitcher all summer long, but I use drastically less simple syrup. A couple ounces in a quart and the drink tastes right, but without the cloying, syrupy sweetness.

I make my simple syrup with Splenda. I use the recipe exactly as posted however I replace sugar and simple syrup with Splenda and syrup made ounce to once with Splenda and boiling water. I coat the top of the glass with Splenda. It cuts the calories significantly and it is delicious. If you watch calories, try it.

For the sugar rim, I suggest mixing the sugar and zest from the lemons you'll use in the cocktail. Wipe the rims with the spent lemons to moisten before dipping.

I keep it simple and easy. I found this lemon drop martini mix in a specialty food store in York Maine . The store is called Stonewall Kitchens. The have all kinds of great food. Its a big store with lots of tourists in the summer .,plus a big mail order business and they sell their products to other specialty food stores across the U.S.. A store near us stocks their products , Try the Main blueberry jelly and their pasta. I have used this mix with various vodka's with a two to one mix. Its around $9 for a large bottle. There is also a recipe on the bottle. I also do not use sugar on the rim.

At that point, make it with a good quality gin (like Drumshanbo)... even better!
