Meyer Lemon Drops

The old school simple lemon drop elevated with the beautiful, soft flavor of the Meyer lemon which always works well with rosemary.

Number of servings


  • 6 oz. ice cold vodka
  • 1 Sunkist® Meyer lemon
  • 0.5 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 sprig rosemary (optional)
  • 1 match (optional)


  1. Light your match and lightly roast the rosemary sprig but don’t burn. Combine rosemary and sugar in a glass jar and shake. Let this sit for an hour. (This step is optional. For a faster method skip to next step!)
  2. Pour the sugar onto a small plate and remove rosemary, if using.
  3. Cut the Meyer lemon into 6 wedges.
  4. Pour 1 oz. of cold vodka into each shot glasses, for six shots total.
  5. Coat both sides of the lemon wedges in the rosemary-sugar blend. Do this for all six wedges.
  6. Shoot the vodka…
  7. Bite the lemon…
  8. Enjoy the flavors!
