Valentine’s Day is barreling towards us like a cupid out of hell this year. For those of you not looking forward to all the lovey-dovey-smushy-gushy-wuv-you-shmoopy celebration, let’s take those lemons and make … alcoholic beverages.
I give you, the “When Life Gives You Lemons” aka “Single on Valentine’s Day” aka “Not Sour ‘Bout It”:
1 1/2 oz. Crystal Head Vodka
1/2 oz. triple sec
1/2 oz. simple syrup (1 part water, 1 part sugar)
3/4 oz. freshly squeezed lemon juice
Mix ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain into a sugar-rimmed glass and garnish with lemon slice or twist.
Enjoy, you single, saucy minx you.
