Los Angeles has me dizzy with lemons! So, I thought the best way to get in the weekend groove would be to have a Lemon Drop with a couple friends in Studio City. If you're ever in the area (or you work at CBS), then head to Black Market and order yourself a Lemon Drop. And because you gotta nibble on something, get some deviled quail eggs and prep yourself for the next venue.
From there you're going to want to Uber to Firefly or walk. But the traffic is kinda crazy in this area. Good luck with that. Once you're there, get another Lemon Drop with an order of bone marrow ravioli! YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you're still hungry or searching for more lemony goodness, hit Dupars and pick up a slice of blueberry pie! Just don't eat anything else from there. Not a good idea.
Or...if you're like fellow Vingler @rodiziketan, who knows how to make these things, just make it yourself. But then you miss out on the life happening all around you in places like Studio City.
If you DON'T KNOW HOW to make this simple drink, here you go:
1/2 oz Vodka
1/2 oz Fresh lemon juice (FRESH!)
1 sugar cube
Rim an old fashioned glass with sugar and drop a sugar cube in the empty glass.
In a shaker, pour in vodka, lemon juice and fill with ice.
SHAKE IT till it's near frostbite cold!
Strain into the glass--no ice.
