A few additional tips

  • You can skip the simple syrup and simply place a sugar cube in each shot glass, if you would like it sweeter or to change things up. If you do this, increase the lemon juice to 4 ounces in place of the simple syrup.
 
  • If your ingredients are already chilled, don’t worry about shaking it with ice. However, if it needs to be ice cold, shake with ice, but do it lightly or it will froth up.
 
  • For another version, you can also replace the simple syrup with 2 ounces of lemon lime soda.
 
  • Be sure to coat the rims of your shot glasses before adding the liquid, if that’s the route you’re taking.
 
  • The size of shot glasses can vary from 1.25 ounces to 3.5 ounces. So, be aware of the size of your shot glasses and adjust the recipe as needed.
