Quickstart CocktailsLemon, Lime and Sours


Zachary Pearson's picture

I like 2 oz Siete Leguas Blanco (or Tequila Ocho), 1 oz lime, 3/4 Cointreau - I tend to be a minimalist... I want to taste the tequila, and it should be tart. I strongly prefer neutral-spirit based orange liqueurs over brandy based ones.

Love it with the half salted rim. (4 stars)
New favorite recipe: 2 oz tequila, 3/4 oz lemon/lime juice mix (or all lime), 3/4oz Cointreau, 1/4 oz simple syrup, on the rocks. (5 stars)
Consider muddling a jalepeno or other hot pepper slice. May need to add a bit of some sort of citrus juice to calm the hot pepper. Peng uses 3:2:1 Tequilla, Lime, Cointreau, a very tart version. (5 stars)
