Lemon Drop

A book extra for The Frog Prince

This delicious recipe figures into the story...

The Lemon Drop cocktail originated in San Francisco, where most of the Frog Prince takes place.

  • 1 1/2 oz. Vodka
  • 1/2 oz Triple Sec
  • 3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp superfine sugar
  • Ice cubes, superfine sugar for dipping, twisted peel of lemon

Mix the vodka, Triple Sec, sugar, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice; shake well (supposedly the cocktail is to be shaken 40 times to make sure the sugar is well blended). Pour strained liquor into sugar -rimmed martini glass and garnish with a twisted peel of lemon.
