A little tangy, a little sweet and a lotta smooth.

Pucker up, people—‘cause I’ve got a summer sipper for you that slides down just as easy peasy as lemon squeezy.

This riff on the classic clear Lemon Drop Cocktail is a great one for your backyard guests this summer. 

And, oooo, how it’d pair up with barbecue! It’s cool, creamy and delightfully dreamy. And, yes, I’m done rhyming now.

A short lemony list of ingredients! Lemon vodka, limoncello, lemon juice and lemon yogurt. Oh, and a wee bit of sugar to unpucker those lips.

Cut your pretty lemon in half. Squeeze and strain the juice to get about an ounce.

Use a wedge of lemon to swipe around the rims of two cocktail glasses. Then dip the wet rims into colorful sugars. Voila—party-ready barware!

Glasses ready and waiting.

Then just mix the lemon juice and sugar with a spoon first to dissolve the sugar. Add the vodka, limoncello and yogurt, and shake to combine to a silky smooth.

If you’d like your drinks to be more of a lemon yellow color, add three drops of yellow food color and shake. Not mandatory—it tastes the same either way! Just do it for beautification if you want to.

Then shake with ice to chill ‘er all down, and strain into the waiting glasses.

Refreshingly tasty and summery, just as a lemon drop should be!
