ingredients

  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • 1/2 ounce orange liqueur (Triple Sec, Grand Marnier, Cointreau, etc.)
  • 1 teaspoon superfine sugar*
  • 3/4 ounce freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • Ice cubes
  • Superfine sugar for dipping
  • Twisted peel of lemon
  • Superfine sugar is instantly dissolving sugar that is typically used in drinks. If you want to avoid the shaking, make a Basic Simple Syrup Recipe to use in place of the sugar.

Instructions

Mix the vodka, orange liqueur, sugar, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice; shake well (supposedly the cocktail is to be shaken 40 times to make sure the sugar is well blended). Pour strained liquor into sugar-rimmed martini glass and garnish with a twisted peel of lemon. NOTE: To create a sugar-rimmed glass, take a lemon wedge and rub the drinking surface of the glass so it is barely moist. Dip the edge of the glass into the superfine sugar. Makes 1 serving.
