Ingredients

  • 1 ½ Ounce vodka
  • ¾ Ounce lemon juice (juice from a little less than one whole lemon, typically)
  • ½ Ounce triple sec
  • Lemon round for garnish
  • Superfine sugar for the rim

Directions

Rim the cocktail glass with sugar by running a fresh-cut lemon wedge around the edge of the cocktail glass, then dipping the rim in a shallow plate of sugar on all sides. Combine the ingredients, except the lemon garnish, in a cocktail shaker filled partway with ice, and shake until very cold. Strain into prepared glass, then garnish with lemon round.
