Remember the Lemonhead hard lemon candy? This cocktail is the adult equivalent of that childhood favorite. It combines citrus, orange liqueur and vodka for the perfect blend of tart and sweet. One of my all time favorite cocktails.
- 2 oz Vodka
- 1⁄2 oz Triple Sec
- 1 o z Simple Syrup
- 1 oz Fresh lemon juice
- Coat the rim of a cocktail glass with sugar and set aside. (Do this a few minutes ahead of time so the sugar can dry and adhere well to the glass).
- Add the remaining ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice.
- Shake, then strain into the prepared glass.
- Garnish with a lemon twist.
