Lemon Drop

Anyone who knows me knows that I love some lemons. And its pretty fitting considering my favorite color is yellow also. Here is one of my favorite drinks. And if you do not have fresh lemon juice, you can use concentrate you just need to make sure to use a little more simple syrup.
Navia's Lemon Drop:

Before making the drink, put a little water around the rim of the glass that the drink is going into. On a plate, place about a 1/2 of sugar and drip the rim in it. I let the glass sit after that so that the sugar can set on the rim. Now for the drink.
In a shaker add:
1/2 cup ice
1 jigger Absolut Citron (or it you're me 2)
Juice from 3 lemons (if using concentrate, I do about 1 cup of lemon juice)
1/2 cup of simple syrup
(1 cup of sugar and 1 cup water is usually how I do mine)
 side note: you can make the syrup on the stove but if crunched for time do like I usually do and  microwave for about 20 seconds until the water and sugar are mixed well.
Mix all of the ingredients in shaker.

This has been a go-to drink so far this spring/summer since it is so easy to make. We also made it with 360 Vodka which is a really cool company out of Missouri.

Does anyone else have a go-to drink in the warm seasons.
