Ritz Cocktail

from The Craft of the Cocktail

  • 1 ounce Cognac
  • .5 ounce Cointreau
  • .25 ounce Maraschino Liqueur
  • .25 ounce Lemon Juice
  • Champagne
  • Flamed Orange Peel (Garnish)

Stir the first four ingredients in a mixing glass. Strain into a martini glass and fill with Champagne. Garnish with the flamed orange peel.

This drink is my tribute to the Ritz Cocktails of Paris and Madrid.
