Cocktail of the Week:Your new favorite drink, the vodka sour


This drink is perfect to let go of the winter and welcome in the spring season.

The vodka sour is the perfect early spring drink. Holding onto the notes of cold winter evenings with the vodka and leaning into spring with the citrus; this drink can be your celebratory go-to now that the sun does not go down at 4 p.m.!


2 ounces any kind of vodka 

3/4 ounce lemon juice, for best result use a freshly squeezed lemon

¾ teaspoon simple syrup, amount can vary depending on how sweet you prefer the drink 

Maraschino cherries for an optional garnish

Or you can add 1/2 of a lemon slice as a garnish instead 


Pour the vodka, lemon juice and simple syrup into a shaker with ice.

Shake thoroughly with a shaker.

Strain into a chilled glass filled with or without ice, depending on your preference.

Garnish with whichever choice you prefer.
