1.21.17 It really does taste like the candy. The sugar-coated lemon wedge really tames the tart lemon juice.

Not bad. It's not worth juicing the lemons for though. And the sugar goes right to the bottom of the shot glass. Next time, use lemon juice and I'll warm it and melt the sugar in the juice first...

My favorite shot. My best friend and I used to do these all the time when we were younger. Now it will be my memorial shot for her

Love, love, love
