There's all about hierarchy :

Menu1 Item 1
Menu1 Item 2

    SubMenu1 Item 1
    SubMenu1 Item 2

Menu1 Item 3

Item 1 could be any menu type, like an article or link or.... you only have to select the parent menu you want, in this case (SubMenu1)

And in SubMenu1 select Menu1 as his parent.

Check the example here

And then click on Menu test 1 here

Before attempting to add a drop down menu item, review your template settings to be sure your template supports drop down menus.

Wow - you are right - this template does not seem to support dropdown menu items - but the weird thing is that when i saw the demo - it has them (drop down menu items)

This link below explains clearly & i do not have the Category blog option:

Your template could not have the drop down menu but there are plenty alternatives:
