- 2 oz brandy (cognac)
- 1 oz Cointreau
- 1 oz lemon juice
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled, sugar-rimmed cocktail glass.
Garnish with a orange twist.
Could use a flamed orange peel instead of the original lemon twist garnish.
This is a true classic. This formula spawned many modern drinks like the Margarita, Kamikaze, and the Cosmopolitan.
