Try the refreshing Limoncello Lemon Drop today. Simple, citrusy, and perfect for any occasion.


  • 1 ounce Vodka
  • 2 ounces Limoncello
  • 1/2 ounce Lemon Juice freshly squeezed
  • Sugar for rim
  • Lemon Slice for garnish


  • Prepare the Glass:
  • Start by rimming your cocktail glass.
  • Rub the rim of the glass with a lemon slice to moisten it, then dip the rim in sugar to coat it evenly. This will give a sweet edge to each sip.
  • Mix the Cocktail:
  • In a shaker, combine 1 ounce of vodka, 2 ounces of Limoncello, and 1/2 ounce of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
  • Fill the shaker with ice, covering the liquid.
  • Shake It Up:
  • Secure the lid on the shaker and shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds. The shaking not only chills the drink but also mixes the ingredients thoroughly.
  • Strain and Serve:
  • Strain the mixture into the prepared glass. Make sure to strain out the ice so that your drink remains undiluted and crisp.
  • Garnish and Enjoy:
  • Garnish with a slice of lemon on the rim or float it on top of the drink for a decorative touch.
