The perfect classy accompaniment to Surf & Turf. Voila.  


  • 2 oz cognac 
  • 1 oz Cointreau 
  • ¾ oz fresh-squeezed lemon juice 
  • Lemon wedge 
  • Lemon or orange twist, for garnish 
  • Superfine or turbinado sugar to rim glass  


Prepare cocktail glass by making a slit in a lemon wedge and running the cut edge around the rim of the glass. Dip the rim in a saucer of superfine sugar to create a thin crust and chill glass until needed. 

Pour other ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes. Shake well until chilled. 

Strain into serving glass and garnish with a twist of lemon or orange peel.
