This is simultaneously sweet and sour and absolutely delightful. It is also referred to in my house hold as Lisa’s Giggle Juice.


  • 2 oz vodka
  • 1 oz simple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice (this is 1 oz lemon juice or 1/2 the amount of vodka)
  • A wedge of lemon


  1. Combine all ingredients in a shaker and shake to make it cold.
  2. Take a wedge of lemon and go around the edge of a glass to dampen it. Dip the glass in sugar to add a sugared rim.
  3. Add ice to the glass taking care not to disturb the rim.
  4. Fill with what’s in the shaker.
