Vodka Sour

I guess the only way to differentiate a Vodka Sour from a Vodka Fix is that the sour is served in a sour glass with no ice. The garnish, a lemon slice and a cherry, are also different from the Fix's twist. Unlike a whiskey sour or some brandy sours, there is no egg white, which I am starting to view as a deal breaker.

But the Vodka Sour is a nice introductory into classic cocktails for the vodka drinker. They sometimes need a push beyond dry Martinis, tonics and sodas.
  • 2 oz. vodka
  • 1 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • lemon slice
  • maraschino cherry
Combine vodka, lemon juice and sugar in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled sour glass. Garnish with the lemon slice and cherry.
