Instructions Checklist
  • Pour sugar onto a small, rimmed plate. Rub rims of two martini glasses with lemon wedge to moisten, then dip rims into sugar to coat (see notes).

  • Place ice in a cocktail shaker. Add vodka, liqueur, and lemon juice. Shake until mixture is very cold, about 10 seconds. Strain into glasses. Garnish each with a twist of lemon peel.

Chef's Notes

Look for lemon- flavored vodka and liqueur (such as the Italian liquore di limoni) in well-stocked supermarkets and liquor stores. For extra frostiness, put sugar-rimmed glasses in the freezer for 7 to 8 minutes.
