Refreshing Lemon Drop
For the vodka, I chose Oak by Absolut, a new vodka featuring a combination of original Absolut vodka, barrel rested vodka and vodka rested on oak to create a taste profile unlike anything else.
Other than that, you just need some triple sec (orange-flavored liquor), fresh lemon juice, sugar, and ice.
Mix everything up and you can get the party started!
