Lemon Drop shots are similar to Tequila shots. It is more about the process than actually mixing anything together. The lemon and sugar give this shot the real sour kick you'd expect from the name. You can also try the Lemon Drop Martini.

Prep Time: 3 minutes

Total Time: 3 minutes

Yield: 1 Shooter


  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • Lemon wedge
  • Sugar


  1. Pour vodka into a shot glass.
  2. Coat a lemon wedge with sugar.
  3. Drink the shot of vodka.
  4. Follow up immediately with a bite into the sugary lemon.

Alternatively, rim the edge of a shot glass with lemon juice and dip it into sugar. Shake off any loose sugar. This leaves a sour, sugar coated shot glass that you then pour the vodka into and shoot.
