Getting the balance right on this drink is challenging. It can certainly vary depending on which orange liqueur you are using. This is the ratio I currently use.
- 1½ oz Cognac or brandy
- 1 oz orange liqueur
- ¾ oz lemon juice
- garnish: orange twist, discarded
Shake vigorously with ice. Strain into a coupe glass.
Express the oils from an orange twist over the drink, then discard the peel.
