Lemon Drop Cocktail with Vodka Recipes
A Lemon Drop is a vodka-based cocktail that has a lemony, sweet and sour flavor, prepared using cocktail recipes like lemon juice, triple sec and simple syrup. It has been described as a variant of, or as "a take on", the Vodka Martini. It is typically prepared and served straight up – chilled with ice and strained.
The drink was invented sometime in the 1970s by Norman Jay Hobday, the founder and proprietor of Henry Africa's bar in San Francisco, California. Some variations of cocktail recipes with vodka exist, such as blueberry and raspberry lemon drops. It is served at some bars and restaurants in the United States, and in such establishments in other areas of the world.
