This Vanilla Lemon Drop cocktail has a creamy, lemony flavor that reminds me of lemon frosting on a white cake. It’s sweet but subtle, and that heavenly touch of vanilla adds a lovely flavor and aroma. All of the cocktails I’ve featured recently are the result of experimenting with some homemade flavor infused vodkas and herb infused simple syrups. These flavor-infused liquids allowed me and my friend Ashley to come up with some really amazing cocktails. Don’t be afraid to make a batch of your own infused vodka… it is beyond easy, and it only takes a few days to produce awesome results. If you’re running short on time and you want to make this right away, feel free to substitute pre-made vanilla vodka, which can be found in most grocery stores. For a stronger flavor, pour the cocktail into a chilled glass with no ice (as the ice melts, the cocktail will begin to dilute). Enjoy!
