Convenience buttons?

I have a reasonably fresh install of 4.7 with very little in the way customisation (as yet).
While the Application menu is handy and can be customised, is it possible to add another drop down (for example somewhere in between Applications Places System Firefox icon, command prompt icon and pluma icon) to enable a drop down menu of just what I use most?
Apologies if this is already covered in a post or that I have not R(all)TFM yet.

You could use the Drawer widget and then you must add an Application Launcher. Would look like that:
