This one is worth the extra work! I run whole lemons through a Juiceman®, which produces a thick juice that requires diluting equal parts with water. Makes a generous drink I like to put in a fiesta glass.

  1. Pour 1/4 to 1/2 inch of sugar onto a small, shallow plate. Moisten the rim of a margarita glass with a wedge of lemon, dip the moistened glass into the sugar; set aside.
  2. Pour the lemon juice, 2 teaspoons of sugar, vodka, and triple sec into a cocktail shaker over ice. Cover, and shake until the outside of the shaker has frosted. Strain into the prepared margarita glass, and serve.

I didn't use a Juiceman, just an old-fashioned hand juicer. Very lemony-lemon drop. And just the right amount of sweet. Good stuff.


I was searching around on this site for a vodka drink and found this tasty drink. Very nice lemon drop, allows you to make it as sweet as you desire.


I may have gotten my hands on some unusually tart lemons, but it took closer to 3 Tablespoons of sugar to make this sweet enough for us and we do not like sweet drinks. After fiddling with the sugar amount it still didn't have that smooth flavor that I have enjoyed when I have has a lemon drop while out, so I added some cointreau and that seemed to take a bit of the edge off.
