This perfect cocktail was first created by Norman Jay Hobday in the 1970s in San Francisco. This cocktail is the life of any night of the week! This popular drink has inspired a number of ready-to-drink variations. The drink can be prepared with only three main ingredients: vodka, freshly squeezed lemon, and simple syrup. Really, that’s it! Add a little lemon zest to give the drink the required kick. It is a perfect combination of bitter and sweet and is definitely everything you look in a cocktail.
