Ease into the month of love with this delicious, refreshing strawberry lemon drop. It’s sweet, sour and tangy. The perfect Valentine’s Day/ happy hour cocktail.

One of my favorite cocktails is a lemon drop. I love mixing things up with flavors. This strawberry lemon drop is such a treat and the perfect happy hour cocktail.
What you’ll need

Strawberry Jam– I like using strawberry jam over muddling fresh strawberries because it blends better.
Orange Liqueur– the orange citrus compliments the lemon and strawberries. I used
