1.5 oz Sugar
0.75 oz VS or VSOP Cognac
0.75 oz Cointreau
Fresh lemon juice
Coat the rim of a cocktail glass with sugar and set aside.
(Do this a few minutes ahead of time so the sugar can dry and adhere well to the glass.) Add the remaining ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice.
Shake, and strain into the prepared glass.
Garnish with a piece of orange peel.
