Tips To Make Lemon Drop Shot

Pre-Chilled Vodka is best suited for this drink as chilled Shot is easy to consume and dilutes the tartiness by a bit. Store your Vodka for about an hour or two in Freezer and take it out just before preparing this drink.

Lemon Drop Shot is best served with Clear Vodka. However, there are many people who prefer Citrus flavored Vodka and this adds more tarty taste and citrus flavor to the drink on the whole. 

Instead of Simple syrup, you can also add granulated sugar while mixing the cocktail in the shaker.

After pouring the cocktail onto the shot glass already rimmed with Sugar, you can also garnish it with Lemon slices. Alternatively, these lemon slices can be coated with fine sugar powder and then garnished over the shot glass. 

Variations of Lemon Drop Shot
