LEMON COCKTAILS

LEMON & LEMON FLAVORED COCKTAILS

Lemon is a pretty classic cocktail flavor. It's the top citrus used in sours, the most ubiquitous cocktail garnish in it's many forms and it has been adding a tart zing to alcoholic beverages since time immemorial. You cannot have a well stocked bar without fresh lemons. From simply tossing a splash of vodka into a glass of lemonade to infusing your own Lemoncello (Limoncello is trademarked) (recipe below), lemons are the hardest working citrus fruit in any bartender's handbook.

The ancient Egyptians believed that eating or drinking lemons would provide an effective protection against a variety of poisons, and today's knowledge of the health benefits of lemons confirms this.  Lemons are known to have antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting powers. So adding some lemon juice, zest or even just a nice twist to a cocktail is always a good idea!

Below is a list of my cocktails that feature lemon as their main flavor. If I listed all the cocktails that used it as the sour element or cocktails that used it as a garnish alone the post would never end! Check back occasionally, I'm always adding more!
