Put all ingredients in the shaker. Add fresh ice and shake it like a legend. Strain into ice filled glass. Top up with soda water if you fancy it.
Monkey Shoulder Tips: Jam-flavoured lemon juice! Squeeze the fresh lemon juice in advance, pour into an empty jar and add a dollop of jam. Shake the Monkey hell out of it! This will give you beautiful lemon juice jam, easy to mix into your cocktail. Plus it prevents your lemon juice from oxidizing, so you can prepare it in advance.
