We all know the old adage. When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade.
But in 2016, people seem to be taking it a bit further. If you’re Beyoncé, you make a platinum album. If you’re a bartender, you squeeze those lemons into your vodka. If you’re The Spirit Guide, you blow our mind by using every single part of said lemon to create a tantalizingly delicious (and environmentally friendly) cocktail in The Commons Club.
Meet The Lemon Drop.
How many times did The Spirit Guide use a lemon? Let’s count:
1. Lemon Juice
Simple. Freshly squeezed.
2. Lemon Shells
Squeeze the leftover lemon shells into a bucket of sugar to macerate
3. Lemon Garnishes
Use the leftovers to create a lemon brine.
4. Lemon Powder
Dehydrate the leftover sugary lemons and grind into powder for the rim of the glass (told you – the man is creative).
5. Belvedere Lemon Tea flavored vodka
6. Lemon bitters
Just a little something extra.
And there you have it. Six ways, one lemon, one delicious cocktail. Cheers!
