Spring Cocktail Recipe: Strawberry Lemon Drop

Thank the heavens that Spring is right around the corner! Spring means people are coming out of hibernation mode and getting out and about. I have grown a bit obsessed with entertaining as of late and experimenting with different cocktail recipes is one of my favorite things....well that and drinking. I love any excuse for a good cocktail! 

One of my favs is the classic lemon drop. I wanted to infuse it with a fruit and added a bit of strawberry puree to the classic recipe and it turned out amazing! The perfect mixture of sweet and sour, great for any girls night in. So let's get right into it so you can start making this yummy creation ASAP!

Strawberry Lemon Drop Recipe 
  • 2 parts Vodka
  • 1 part triple sec
  • 1 part lemon juice (I used freshly squeezed) 
  • 1/2 part simple syrup (I used homemade ginger simple syrup)
  • 1/2 part strawberry puree (3-4 strawberries, sugar, water and BLEND!)
  • lemon drop candies for fun! (optional) 
  • Sugar rim of glass (I went sugar crazy....I LOVE sugar!)
  • Shake with ice then serve
  • Garnish with a strawberry
  • Add slice of lemon or lemon drop candy if feeling festive
