  • 1 ½ Ounces Vodka
  • ¾ Ounce Cointreau
  • ¾ Ounce Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp Simple Syrup


  • Shake these in a cocktail shaker and then strain them over ice.
  • Garnish the glass with a rim of sugar.


Just remember: when the drink is this simple, nothing matters more than the quality of the ingredients. Don't use this to hide inferior additives: use a top-shelf vodka, fresh lemons rather than juice, and a homemade simple syrup for the best results.
