  • Place 1 tablespoon lemon juice in a small saucer and place sugar in a separate saucer. Dip rim of a martini glass in the lemon juice and then dip in the sugar. Let the glass stand while mixing the cocktail to allow sugar to adhere.

  • Combine the cooled honey mixture, vodka and the remaining 1/4 cup lemon juice in a cocktail shaker; fill the shaker halfway with ice. Cover and shake vigorously until chilled, about 30 seconds. Strain into the prepared glass. Garnish with lemon slice, if desired.
