Drink OF THE DAY: the skinny confidential
1.5 ounce blanco tequila
1 ounce of Cointreau
Limes ( tons )
A little lemon
A speck of agave
The half rim of salt, always
How to make
Use a lime to rim the glass & then add salt to only half the rim. In a martini shaker add 3/4 fresh lime juice, one squeeze of lemon, then add Cointreau and tequila.
Add ice to rimmed glass & shake and strain your cocktail over the ice. Garnish with a grapefruit slice or lime wheel!
I learned from Lauryn that when making a cocktail, start with the cheapest ingredients first & finish with the most expensive last. Add ice to shaker at the very end because you don’t want the ice to melt into your ingredients!
