Mixology MondayIt's that time of the month again - MxMo time!

 

This topic is near and dear to my heart - it's the first cocktail I recommend folks learn, and it's one of my personal favorites.

Special thanks to to Andrea of Ginhound for hosting MxMo this month with the topic: Sours!

 

 

Last month I did awful things to Green Chartreuse, so this month I thought I'd rebuild my drink karma by fixing up a cocktail that's gained a bad reputation: the Lemon Drop.  We're taking it back to our childhood with ground up lemon drop candy, then growing back up again with lemon thyme and oleo saccharum. Love me some nostalgia!

Did you see a tear there? I've never thought nostalgia could taste so good!

 

Special thanks to Andrea from Ginhound for hosting and I'm so excited to see what the others have concocted in their laboratories!
