Elevated Mixers Lemon Drop Recipe

The Lemon Drop is a delicious sweet and tart 80s cocktail that was created by Norman Jay Hobday in San Francisco at his world-renowned bar, Henry Africa's. Hobday was inspired by the famous Lemon Drop candies, and he sought to create a cocktail that captured their irresistible combination of sweetness and tartness.

Today, the Lemon Drop is enjoyed by cocktail lovers around the world, and it has become a classic in its own right. Its refreshing and citrusy flavors make it the perfect drink to enjoy, whether you are lounging by the pool or enjoying a night out with friends.

At Elevated Mixers, we have created our own version of the Lemon Drop using our award-winning Classic Sour mixer. Our Classic Sour is a sweet and sour blend that is masterfully crafted to mix well with virtually anything, and it is the perfect base for a delicious Lemon Drop.

To make an Elevated Mixers Lemon Drop, you will need: 

Citron Vodka

Glass Type:

Martini or Coupe


  1. Prep glass: Use a lemon or a small amount of the Classic Sour to wet the rim of the glass, and then coat the rim with the lemon-infused sugar. This will add a tangy and sweet flavor to the cocktail and will also make it look extra special.
  2. Measure and pour 1 oz Elevated Mixers Classic Sour into cocktail shaker (with NO ice)
  3. Measure and pour 1 1/2 oz Citron (Lemon Flavored) Vodka into cocktail shaker
  4. Dry Shake cocktail shaker well to create a foam on the surface of the liquid. This will give the cocktail a frothy and luxurious texture.
  5. Add ice to cocktail shaker and shake again until chilled
  6. Strain into prepared glass
  7. Enjoy!
