A cross between a White Lady and a Sidecar, the Lemondrop cocktail is best known made with vodka. We choose aromatic gin to add botanical complexity and elderflower liqueur to add some sweet floral notes for a crushable modern classic.
1.5 oz Meyer Lemonpop
1 oz gin or vodka
.75 oz lemon juice
.75 oz elderflower liqueur
3 dashes orange bitters
3 drops vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients into shaker tin.
Shake hard with 5-6 ice cubes for 10 seconds.
Strain into a chilled coupe glass.
Garnish with a lemon twist.
Optional: sugar the rim of the glass prior to straining.
