I have found a few cocktails that use lemon juice and Cointreau as ingredients. Here are the top three options based on ratings: 1. A cocktail with a rating of 4.82/5 that includes lemon vodka, Cointreau, lime juice, and cranberry juice. 2. Another popular choice with a rating of 4.72/5 is a bitter orange & cardamom martini made with vodka, Cointreau, lemon juice, marmalade, and cardamom pods. 3. Lastly, a margarita on the rocks with a rating of 4.67/5 contains Cointreau, lime juice, tequila, and a pinch of salt. Each of these cocktails offers a unique blend of flavors and a refreshing touch of lemon juice paired with Cointreau. Cheers!
