Vodka Lemon Shake Up

My all-time most favorite thing ever, is that first sip of a lemon shake up when you get a mouth full of sugar.  I thought nothing could be better than that.  And then I grew up and added vodka to it.  O.  M.  G.  This must be what heaven tastes like.  The vodka is subtle, but it gives it that fun adult kick in the mouth we all know and love.  The triple sec adds a bright citrus flavor like no other.  Don’t be scared to shake things up a bit (see what a I did there?  I’m clever, I know), give this little beauty a try.

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 ounce triple sec
  • 1 ounce vodka (or more, depending on how strong you want it)
  • 1 lemon; juiced
  • 6 ounces cold water
  • Ice


  1. In a glass, add all of the ingredients.  Then with a special shaker or with another glass secured on top, shake well until combined.
  2. Add more ice to another glass then fill with the vodka lemon goodness.  Serve with a lemon wedge and paper straw because plastic is evil.
