To make the infused vodka ~ pluck the blossoms from their stems, and discard any leaves or other green parts.
Swish the flowers gently in cold water, then lay out to dry on a clean kitchen towel.
Put the flowers in a large wide mouthed mason jar, or other equivalent container.
Fill the container with vodka. Make sure the blossoms are completely covered by the liquid. Cap tightly and keep in a cool dark place for 24 hours, or up to 5 days. Give it a shake now and then.
Strain the vodka through cheesecloth that is at least 4 layers thick. Store in a clean jar, tightly capped. The vodka will keep indefinitely.
To make the lemonade, stir the sugar into the water until it is completely dissolved. Add the fresh squeezed lemon juice and stir. Taste to adjust the sweetness if you like.
To make the cocktail, fill a glass with ice. Add one shot of honeysuckle vodka. Fill the glass with lemonade, garnish with a slice of lemon and a sprig of honeysuckle.
