    Using fresh lemon juice instead of citrus-infused vodka keeps this cocktail fresh and light.

    This recipe was featured as part of our New Year’s Eve cocktails.


    1. 1Place a cocktail glass in the freezer to chill.
    2. 2Pour enough sugar on a small plate to cover.
    3. 3Rub the lemon wedge on the outside rim of the chilled glass. Holding the glass at a 45-degree angle, dip the outside rim in the sugar, rotating as you do, so the entire rim is coated with sugar. (Avoid getting any sugar inside the glass.)
    4. 4Place the vodka, lemon juice, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker and fill halfway with ice. Shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker is frosted. Strain into the sugar-rimmed glass and garnish with the lemon twist.
