Classic Recipe No. 35 —


  • 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.
