PREVIOUS: Lemon Verbena Butter NEXT: Lemon Digestif

Ingredients (5)

  • 3 ounces vodka (ideally lemon-infused or citron)
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 crushed natural maraschino cherries
  • 1/2 oz. cherry vanilla bitters
  • 3 dashes simple syrup or agave nectar

Given the inspiration from Andrea, then inspired by my friend Olivia, this version of the Lemon Drop is less sweet than the traditional version but herbal from the homemade bitters. Use Princess natural maraschino cherries, not those plastic ones.


  1. 1Crush cherries in glass.
  2. 2Shake vodka, bitters and lemon juice with ice, then strain into the cocktail glass.
