Cocktail of the Week: Yuzu Lemon Drop

This week, we're shaking up a delicious twist on the classic Lemon Drop with the Yuzu Lemon Drop. This drink is a burst of sunshine in a glass thanks to the addition of yuzu, a citrus fruit from Japan.


  • 2 oz. Citrus Vodka
  • .75 oz. Cointreau
  • 1 oz. Yuzu Syrup
  • 1 Lemon (for optional zest and garnish)


  1. (Optional) Rim glass with lemon zest and sugar.
  2. Add all ingredients to a shaker with ice and shake vigorously until chilled.
  3. Strain the contents of the shaker into a glass and garnish with lemon twirl.
