To mix vodka and lemonade, add a small amount of vodka to a cocktail shaker, measure the lemonade and pour it into the shaker tin, add ice, and shake the cocktail. Strain the cocktail and pour it into a glass. You need a jigger, a cocktail shaker and a strainer.
- Measure the vodka
Using a two-sided jigger, which is a standard bar measuring tool, measure an ounce of vodka with the larger side, and pour it into a cocktail shaker. Flip the jigger over, and then measure 1/2 ounce on the smaller side, and pour the vodka into the shaker.
- Measure the lemonade
With the jigger, measure 5 ounces of lemonade, and pour it into the cocktail shaker.
- Shake the cocktail
Add a scoop of ice to the shaker. Place the lid or glass on top of the shaker, and then vigorously shake the cocktail several times.
- Serve the cocktail
Add ice to a drinking glass, and remove the lid from the top of the shaker. Place a strainer on top of the shaker, and then, turn the strainer upside down. Finally, pour the drink into the glass, and then garnish the cocktail with a lemon wheel and a straw.
