Vodka Lemon

Vodka Lemon is the classic vodka long drink and almost outrageously simple in its preparation. While the original recipe calls for just vodka and bitter lemon with some ice, we give our drink a little update, giving it a significant flavor boost.

Add a dash of lime juice to give this dusty cocktail icon a fruity, fresh kick. If you are one of the purists among cocktail lovers, you can of course omit the juice and enjoy the long drink in its original version.

For the vodka* lemon

  • 100 ml bitter lemon
  • 50 ml vodka
  • 20 ml organic lime juice
  • Ice cube


  • Bar spoon
  • Citrus juicer
  • Collins glass


Wash the lime with hot water, rub dry with a towel, cut in half and squeeze the juice from one half.
Fill a (preferably pre-chilled) Collins glass 3/4 full with ice cubes and pour the vodka and lime juice over the ice into the glass.
Stir with a bar spoon for 10 to 15 seconds. Then infuse with a dash of bitter lemon.
Cut a slice off the remaining half of the lime and garnish the Vodka Lemon with it. Serve with the opened bottle of Bitter Lemon, so the guest can top up the drink to his taste. Your homemade Vodka Lemon is ready!

Please do not replace the lime juice with lemon juice. The juice of green citrus is more fruity, aromatic and much milder. Instead of squeezing the juice from fresh limes, you can use ready-made lime juice in a pinch. However, in our opinion, the fresh version is much better in taste.
