How To Make A Raspberry Lemon Drop Shot
Step 1: Add the vodka, raspberry syrup and lemon juice to a cocktail shaker filled with ice.

- Chill the shot glasses. These shots are extra refreshing when served ice cold. Chill the shot glasses in the freezer for 30 minutes before pouring this lemon drop shot.
