  • 1 orange, rinsed and dried
  • 2 ounces brandy
  • ¾ ounce fresh lemon juice
  • ½ ounce dry orange liqueur*
  • ¼ ounce Simple Syrup (recipe follows)
  • Dash maraschino liqueur
  1. In a small shallow bowl, place sugar. Fill another shallow bowl with water. Dip the rim of a coupe glass in water, then into sugar.
  2. Using a Y-shaped vegetable peeler, peel orange in one piece, starting at the top. Reserve orange flesh for another use.
  3. In a cocktail shaker, combine brandy, lemon juice, orange liqueur, Simple Syrup, and maraschino liqueur. Add ice, and cover; shake until cold, and strain into prepared glass. Coil the orange peel, and carefully add to glass.
