With the Rock Island County Fair going on, it's time for us to re-live a part of our childhood. Well, sort of. Here's what you'll need.

  • Lemons
  • Sugar
  • Water
  • Vodka

What could be simpler? Use the juice of half of a lemon per serving. Add a tablespoon of sugar and 6 ounces of water and one shot of your favorite vodka. Shake. Serve. Enjoy!
