Luna Lemon Drop

In honor of the full moon weekend, here is my recipe for 'a few' lemon drops; and a bit of full moon lemon drop art as an added bonus:
  • Make simple syrup: 1c sugar+1c water cooked to boiling point; cooled.
  • Crush about 1/2 bag of lemon drop hard candies (I use the food processor) and pick out the large bits; pour the finer lemon candy sugar into a dish.
  • Squeeze as many lemons* as you can, and strain the juice. Measure the amount.
  • Mix in an equal amount of chilled vodka,
  • And an equal amount of simple syrup.
  • Shake this in a cocktail shaker with ice,
  • BUT, before you pour it into the glass...
  • Run a lemon slice around a martini glass and
  • Dip the rim into the lemon candy,
  • Then fill with delicious lemon drop.
*you may use any type of lemon, however I find that the best type are the ones that you are given when you are all pissy and are expected to make lemonade or something.
