Summer has finally surfaced here in Virginia. With that, comes intense heat. So I am always on the look out for a great refreshing cocktail. I was unpacking all of my liquor from our move and I found a bottle of Cointreau. Cointreau is a nice orange flavored spirit that is a kin to triple sec. I love this stuff. So I decided to create the classic cocktail “Cointreau Fizz”. It is pure Cointreau and lime.
Fill a glass with ice. Then add 1.5 oz of Cointreau, the juice of half a lime and top with seltzer.
Stir and serve.
- 1 1/2 oz Cointreau
- 1/2 lime juiced
- 3-4 oz seltzer

This cocktail is light and refreshing. The orange mixed with the lime was a real hit at our house.Share this Recipe:
