Lemon Drops and Back Drops - Summer Cocktail Fun

I made my Sweet'N Low lemon drops as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #SweetNLowStars. All opinions are entirely my own.

I love lemons.
How they look, their bold color and 
the way they make everything brighter and more festive.
Fittingly, one of my favorite cocktails is a Lemon Drop.

This year for our annual Ladies' Lemon Drop Party,
I am "going out on a limb" 
with a fun bar back drop and
a fabulous "skinny" drink recipe.

Simple to shake-up and guilt-free to enjoy,

because I've added Sweet'N Low
(which also makes it diabetic friendly!)

Luscious Lemon Drops
serves 6
2 cups frozen vodka
1/2 cup fresh squeezed and strained lemon juice
5 packets of Sweet'N Low 
(I like them on the tart side so you may want to adjust according to your taste)

Shake all ingredients together in a cocktail shaker with ice.  
Pour into martini glasses and garnish with lemon leaves.

For the bar back drop,
I snipped branches off of our lemon tree and tied on half inflated yellow balloons.
Mounted on a wall or white foam board,
it is the perfect compliment to the beautiful beverages.

Sweet'N Low has other great drink ideas on their website and Facebook Page
