Low Country Lemonade Recipe

While on a recent trip to Washington D.C., I had dinner at Eric Ripert's West End Bistro.  While at the bar, I had one of the best cocktails that I can remember tasting.  It's called Low Country Lemonade (aka a John Daly).  It was so good I had the bartender write down the recipe, as follows:

1 1/2 ounces Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka
2 ounces lemon juice
1 ounce simple syrup

Mix them together in a glass of ice and enjoy.  You can make simple syrup yourself, but I bought a bottle at Safeway for $5.  It's just sugar water.  In California, you can find Firefly vodka at Safeway or Beverages 'n More.
