Weekend Cocktails - Lemon Drop

If I keep doing this weekend cocktail series, I guess I'm going to have to invest in a basic bar set, because frankly these are what I'm using for shaking and straining. Pretty darned sophisticated, huh?! Well, I guess that would be what you call southern ingenuity! Make do with what you have. So, please also forgive my use of the margarita glass for what clearly should be in a martini glass. I'll try to redeem myself on the next martini glass worthy drink. Y'all know I love lemonade, so I guess you could say this is like lemonade on steriods. Perfect for the summer cocktail collection but pretty strong stuff that makes for a very loooooong sipping drink for me. This one will last me all night. Happy weekend y'all!
