This lively concoction combines Cointreau, a sophisticated orange-flavored liqueur, with the fresh, tart flavors of lime and orange juice, and is fortified by the smooth presence of lemon vodka. A touch of sugar adds just the right amount of sweetness to create a well-balanced beverage. This cocktail is typically served in a sugar-rimmed cocktail glass and garnished with an orange slice, making it a visually appealing and invigorating choice for a summery gathering or a vibrant start to any evening.
