It’s time for us guys to stick together and let our fellow uninformed men in on a little secret…Lemon Drops. Yes, you read that correctly Lemon Drops. Such a simple drink and rather fun to say…Lemon Drops. The Lemon Drop Martini is said to have origins from a 70’s singles bar in San Francisco called Henry’s Africa. It’s considered by many to be a “chick drink”, and herein boys is why it is so wonderful.
When made properly, it is sweet enough to drink comfortably, even for those who do not like the taste of alcohol. Here at I Hate Dr Oz would NEVER condone drinking in excess, but there are times that if she has a little too much to drink we can get a few things ‘done’. Some of you out there know what I mean
First off there are a couple of ways to make this drink. The simple way is using premade ingredients, adding booze and serve. That’s fine, but sometimes presentation goes a long way. Remember, we have our own agenda. Work the whole scene, and the chance of success goes up. Here’s what you will need:
What is in an Lemon Drop
This recipe is for groups, it will make 12 lemon drops
- 12 oz of Absolut Citron Vodka
- 2 Fresh Lemon
- 1 can Frozen Lemonade Concentrate
- 3/4 Cup of Granulated Sugar
- Mixing Pitcher
- 2 Cups of Water
- 4 Cups of Ice
- 12 Martini Glasses
Directions to make a Lemon Drop
- Start off by cutting 1 of the lemons in half and squeezing/juicing this into the mixing container. Slice the remaining lemon into quarters, these will be used as the garnish in the martini glass.
- Put the juice concentrate in the pitcher
- Add ½ Cup of Sugar, save the remainder for the garnish
- Add the water to the pitcher

Now this seems very involved, and it can be. Therefore, you need to make sure she watches you do the whole process. Remember, you are there for her, and tending to her. It’s all about her and making a wonderfully tasty drink for HER. If she has friends over and you are serving all of them, all the better. Looking good in front of her friends scores points for you.
The next step is for you. Since you know your girl best, look for the proper signs that the wonders of the Lemon Drop is doing its magic. Most likely, if the drink was mixed properly, the signs really won’t be too subtle. Their power is substantial.
Now go get permission for that new cordless drill! Prepare yourself for the next day though guys. She will try and deny her giving you the OK for whatever it is you may have asked for. Remind her, that she did drink a little bit and she did in fact say it was alright to have the guys over for poker tonight. However, you may want to catch her saying it on video tape, because Lemon Drops seem to cause a little amnesia now and then.
Advice of the day:
Lemon Drops are tasty and you may be tempted to partake as well. DANGER! Avoid this gentlemen. The tables can quickly be turned around. This happened to me the last time and I’m visiting the mother-in-law tomorrow right after I mow the lawn and clean the gutters.
