The Best Vodka For Your Lemon Drop Shot

A lemon drop shot is the definition of simplicity, and so it demands to be made with an excellent vodka. You're trying to decide on the right bottle, and we’re here to help you choose.

If you’ve been wanting to try a new shot, but you’re not sure what you can make with what you have on hand, you’re in luck. We have something you’ll love. You don’t want those complicated mixes with 14 ingredients in a 2 ounce glass. You want something that elevates the liquor, while still adding some variety and fun.

Enter the lemon drop shot. A pared-down version of the lemon drop martini, the lemon drop shot is for the vodka lover who wants the crisp flavor of vodka and the tangy sweetness of a lemon wedge. It’s a throwback from the 70’s and has been a hit ever since – you can’t go wrong with the classics.

As an added bonus, you probably have everything you need to make it in your kitchen. You’re going to need:

If you’ve never tried a lemon drop shot, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how well the sugar cuts through the acidic bite of the lemon, and how perfectly the lemon compliments a great vodka. Oh, and don’t skip the sugared rim on that shot glass.

If you’re wondering what the best vodka for a lemon drop shot is, better go back and read that recipe one more time. Though we’re admittedly biased, we choose GameDay All-American Vodka every time.

We think there are a few things that make GameDay All-American Vodka the best option out there. Our small-batch vodka is handcrafted in Charleston, South Carolina. It’s gluten-free and distilled six times. While we could have stopped there, we kicked it up a notch by using the patented Terrepure processing method.

Terrepure processing creates a premium product with a better, smoother mouthfeel, and significantly less burn. It does this by adding an extra step after the standard distillation process is over. During this process, GameDay All-American Vodka is naturally cleaned and further refined through ultra-sonic energy driven oxidation. Bet you didn’t think you were getting a science lesson today, did you?

But why go through all this effort to produce a bottle of premium vodka? This is for you, and for every fan. We wanted to craft a bottle that fits in just as easily at your local bar as it does in your backyard. Something that brings us all together. 

So whether you’re mixing up a lemon drop shot and hosting at home, or heading out to a tailgate, make sure to grab a bottle. We love to see it.
