Ingredients

  • 1.5

    ounces vodka

  • 0.5

    ounces orange liqueur (Triple Sec, Grand Marnier, Cointreau, etc.)

  • 1

    teaspoon superfine sugar

  • .75 ounces freshly-squeezed lemon juice

  • Ice cubes

  • Superfine sugar for dipping

  • Twisted peel of lemon

Directions

Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Pour in the vodka, orange liqueur, sugar, and lemon juice; shake well to dissolve the sugar. Rim martini glass with lemon wedge and dip rim into sugar. Garnish with a twisted peel of lemon. Note: Basic simple syrup can be used in place of the sugar. To make it, combine equal parts sugar and water and bring to a boil until sugar dissolves.
