The Ingredients

Hmm… Know what makes this drink, uhmm, ‘puzzling’ or not so popular? The mix of Cointreau and lemon juice. You know, the proportions.

The result? The Cointreau (or triple sec) could not really cancel out the sharpness of the lemon juice, and so, sugar was added to the rim.

Yet still.. A ‘failure’ of sorts as the drink needed some syrup to rescue it. Oh my..

Then why didn’t they just include the syrup as the drink’s ingredient as well?

Okay, this is when your experimenting, skill and taste comes to play.. So, just try it out!
