Now let's start mixing our sparkling Champagne cocktail. Add the vodka, lemon juice, simple syrup and a handful of ice to a cocktail shaker.
Put on the top and shake vigorously for 20 seconds. Not only does this create some dilution for the vodka but it ensures our drink is extra refreshing.
Strain the cold vodka and lemon juice mixture into a Champagne flute. Top with chilled Champagne. A coupe glass is also a popular serving option.
IIf desired, add a lemon twist to the side of the glass for a garnish. It adds a beautiful pop of color and lemony scent with every sip. Enjoy!
