Cointreau Rickey

Friday, March 27, 2015

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!

Cointreau Rickey

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!
