COCKTAILS AT SIX: DOUBLE TANGERINE MIXER

At the market today, bright orange tangerines were piled high & beckoned to be taken home by the box...

But what to do with so many bright little darlings? Definitely perfect for munching during lunch breaks... but better yet - mixing into cocktails!

Double Tangerine Cocktail

3 oz (roughly 2 tangerines) fresh tangerine juice
1/2 oz (1/4 lemon) fresh lemon juice
1 oz ginger simple syrup
1 1/2 oz Cognac
superfine sugar for rims

Rub the rim of a chilled cocktail glass with a tangerine wedge & sugar the rim. Put all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice & shake well for 15-20 seconds. Strain into cocktail glass. Garnish with a tangerine twist & leaf.
