DIRECTIONS

  • Preparation and Serving.
  • If you want to garnish the glass rim with sugar, wet the outside of the rim with lemon juice. Dip the outside of the rim in sugar, and swirl glass to coat.
  • For the drink, combine lemon juice, Cointreau, and cognac in a cocktail shaker that is half filled with ice. Shake well for 20 - 30 seconds.
  • Strain mixture into the cocktail glass. If you don’t sugar the rim, you could garnish with a lemon twist or orange slice.
