How to Make the Perfect Lemon Drop Cocktail

One of my favorite uses for flavored vodka has to be Lemon Drops. As far as drinks go, they're almost foolproof. I'll even tolerate low-rent ones made with (gasp!) bottled sour mix.

While the vast majority of Lemon Drops out there are at least somewhat drinkable, a well-made one is a marvel. It almost makes you pine for the cocktail explosion of the late 1990s, back when anything Technicolor-hued in a cocktail glass was dubbed a martini.

Almost.
