Tap For Method
Tap For Ingredients


  1. Fill your glass with ice.
  2. Use a speed-peeler to slice off a long piece of the lime peel, then roll it up and drop into the glass.
  3. Cut the lime in half and squeeze both halves into a Boston shaker, jam jar or jug (you want about 25ml in total).
  4. Pour in the Cointreau and tequila, then add the jam and stir to loosen.
  5. Fill with ice, then shake hard for 30 seconds.
  6. Strain into your glass and enjoy!


If you roll the lime back and forth on the work surface a couple of times, you’ll get a lot more juice when you squeeze it.
