The use of Cointreau, a staple orange liqueur, imbues the cocktail with a sweet and bitter complexity, while the addition of lemon juice adds a fresh, tart dimension. The effervescence from the fizzy orange drink injects a bubbly and refreshing zest, completing the overall flavor profile. Despite the name, there is actually no direct inclusion of lemon juice in the ingredients, which might be an oversight or a twist on expectations. Served in a shot glass, this cocktail offers a burst of citrus that’s likely to have a zingy and spirited character, offering a quick, rich sip of lemony flavors without the inclusion of actual lemon juice.
