Triple Sec
Triple sec is a generic term for a sweet, clear orange-flavored liqueur. It contains 15–40% alcohol by volume level. It is made by macerating sun-dried orange skins in alcohol for at least 24 hours before going through a three-step distilling process. The most popular brand is COINTREAU

The Cocktail

A Mexican classic that’s hard to beat on a hot sunny day! Whether you like them served straight up, on the rocks, blended, with fresh fruit or with a touch of salt, the combination is a true winner.

 

Bartender Tip:

Good tequila is required. Salt is optional. Ice is totally your preference. A touch of fresh fruit or chilli is a winner.
