Lemon Liv Recipe

Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: 5 minutes | Active Time: | Makes: 1 drink

Given the inspiration from Andrea, then inspired by my friend Olivia, this version of the Lemon Drop is less sweet than the traditional version but herbal from the homemade bitters. Use Princess natural maraschino cherries, not those plastic ones.

INGREDIENTS
  • 3 ounces vodka (ideally lemon-infused or citron)
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 crushed natural maraschino cherries
  • 1/2 oz. "cherry vanilla bitters":http://www.chow.com/recipes/12040
