Black Lily Cocktail recipe

Created by Remy-Cointreau Mixologist Kyle Ford, c/o SF Cocktail Week

From SF Cocktail Week’s site: With only three ingredients, this nod to San Francisco achieves blissful simplicity. Cleverly using Cointreau as the base, the bitter and sweet orange oils, combined with fresh lime, brings out the very best in Fernet. The anticipated bracing mintiness takes a back seat while all the other herbs and spices take the spotlight and dance on your palate. What you are presented with is a complex, yet succinct, Sour.


  • 1.5 oz Cointreau
  • 1 oz Fernet Branca
  • .75 oz fresh lime juice

Add all ingredients to a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a rocks glass. Garnish with orange peel.
