So...I have 3 lemon trees bursting with lemons. Does anyone have a favorite drunk recipe using lemons? If you are in the Las Vegas area and want some lemons hit me up.

Viking Fogcutter - it's one of my favorite drinks. Be cautious if your lemons are tart though. This drink *sings* to me when the lemons are tree-ripened and not too tart. The Aquavit float seals the deal.

* Note: Newer Viking Fogcutter versions (starting around 1970) call for lime juice instead of lemon. I'm referring to the 40's and 50's recipes.

Saturn Cocktail is true Tiki and delicious.

I have been on a total lemon kick lately, love it in cocktails. Not tiki, but current faves in rotation at home are:

Bees Knees - gin, lemon, honey
Hot Lemonade (aka Hot Toddy) - bourbon, lemon, honey, hot water
French 75 - gin, lemon, simple syrup, champagne

Definitely echo the Saturn and Fog Cutter (any version!) nods. The Hurricane is a lemon-based cocktail as well. I recently had a lovely drink at one of my work locals made from Old Grandad, lemon, and orange honey. Wonderful stuff.

Lots of good cocktails using lemon/orange/passionfruit combos, like the Lapu Lapu. Either way if they're bursting, get juicing and freeze what you don't plan to use!

Cannae believe I didn't think of this before - you should totally make a bunch of homemade limoncello!

I make something I call a Trader Vic Lemonade (not because it's actually his recipe, but because it uses alot of his favorite ingredients) when I have a lot of lemons or if its really hot out

1 1/2 oz orgeat
1 1/2 oz lemon juice
1 oz white rum
1 oz brandy
4 oz club soda

Shake all except soda to chill, then add soda and pour into tall glass. Add ice cubes to fill.

Saturns are the best for sure. More of a classic than a tiki drink, the Corpse Reviver #2 is one of my all time favorites.

Oooohhhh I second that Corpse Reviver. The greatest of all breakfast drinks.

There's another thread about freezing juices somewhere. I put juices in an ice cube tray, they are about an ounce each. After they are frozen, I individually wrap them in Saran Wrap and then mark and bag them

We do get new threads for old questions, so I generally don't answer. It's the same (or very similar) question over and over again. The "we don't answer cuz it's a duplicate" issue is a bummer for the questioner because some of us have extensive experience with some of these repeat questions. The lesson? Search before you create a thread, and you'll probably find a better place to ask your question.

Gotta run -- I have a post I wanna start about "best blender" or "best ice crusher."

Tongue-in-cheek of course... But not really, though, lol...

Here's that other thread. But it might have been hard to find, it wasn't under freezing or lemon. I was able to find it quickly because I knew I had posted the word "Saran" which is an uncommon word on here

And the Trader Vic Lemonade mentioned above is basically a Trader's Vic Punch minus the orange juice. There a tons and tons of drinks that require lemons juice. My cocktail recipe DB has well over 30.
