This French themed cocktail is both tart and delightfully "dry" and features cognac, orange liqueur and fresh lemon juice. A perfect way to try something different with fortified cognac, a high-quality brandy, properly that distilled in Cognac in western France. Nothing is fancier than this cocktail. ;)
- 1 oz lemon juice freshly squeezed
- 1 oz triple sec or other orange liqueur (like Cointreau)
- 2 oz cognac
Add the cognac, triple sec, and lemon juice to a shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled.
Strain into a glass.
Garnish with an orange or lemon rind.
