Pucker up for this sweet and sour cocktail that makes a great dessert drink. It is a very easy drink that can be more or less sweet or sour by adjusting the lemon and syrup according to your taste. You may also want to experiment with flavored vodkas or add a little extra flavor like the Lavender Lemon Drop. This is a great recipe to explore and adapt to your personal taste.

You can enhance the citrus flavor by adding 1/4 ounce Cointreau and using only 1/2 teaspoon simple syrup. For the more adventurous, there is also a Lemon Drop shooter.

I substitute the unpredictable tasting, labor intensive, and not always handy, lemon twist with a ""lemon garnishz"" from the Garnishz Company. The soft, sweet fruit slice is a perfect complement to any lemon drop recipe.
