Drink Recipes Description

Cointreau + whiskey + lemon juice + lime juice + sugar + apricot preserves + tonic.


  • 2 oz triple sec (I like Cointreau when I can find it on sale)
  • 2 oz whiskey (I used Bushmills Irish Whiskey)
  • 1 and 1/2 oz lemon juice
  • 2/3 oz lime juice
  • 1 tsp. granulated sugar (super fine sugar is best, but regular baking sugar will do)
  • 1/2 tsp. apricot preserves
  • 3 oz. tonic water


  1. In a shaker, combine all ingredients except tonic water with ice and shake well. Fill two glasses with ice and strain half of the drink mixture into each glass.
  2. Top each glass off with 1 and 1/2 ounces of tonic water. Serve immediately.
