I am currently in the middle of an econometrics assignment (for those that don’t know, it’s worse than it sounds). So after work I head out to uni for a late night in the computer labs. There is not a lot to keep you motivated during these times, but coming home to a warm home and a little cocktail certainly helps me push through.
K and I really like traditional cocktails. The fancy modern ones can be fun for a night out, but at home the clean flavours of the old favourites are our preference. This is a super simple cocktail, but wonderfully balanced.
2 ounces (60ml) brandy (cognac)
1 ounce (30ml) Cointreau
½ ounce (15ml) fresh lemon juice
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
