Lemon Drop Martini is a cocktail made with vodka, lemon juice, and simple syrup, and is typically served with a sugared rim. The cocktail has a sweet-tart flavor profile and is popular for its refreshing taste. The rim of a martini glass is then coated with sugar by wetting the rim with a lemon wedge and dipping it into sugar.
