This simple cocktail packs an unexpected punch; most people assume Cointreau and other cordials are low in alcohol, but this drink is as strong as some whiskey highballs, and just the thing to kick off your weekend!
2 oz Cointreau
1/2 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
4 oz club soda
Pour Cointreau and lime juice into a rocks glass; add ice. Top with club soda and stir; garnish with a lime and orange zest.
Notes: Cointreau is a little spendy, but in cocktails where Cointreau is the main ingredient, it really can't be substituted for less expensive orange liqueurs. I'd posit that it's well worth the investment–cheers!
