  • 1 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 oz Honey Simple Syrup
  • 2 oz vodka
  • Lemon wedges for garnish


  • Place 2-3 ice cubes in a cocktail shaker. Add the lemon juice, simple syrup and vodka.
  • Shake vigorously and pour into a glass. Serve with a lemon wedge, for garnish.


  • Change up the citrus in the recipe and use lime juice or grapefruit juice instead.
  • A splash of Sprite on top just before serving adds a bubbly flavor.
  • Wet the rim of the glass and dip in sugar before filling the glass and serving.
  • This drink can be made sans shaker, but the end result will be much less bubbly.
