Varying slightly from the original, it contained 1 ½ ounces Absolut Citron, ¾ ounce Cointreau, ½ ounce lime juice and ½ ounce Ocean Spray, garnished with a thin, twirling lime peel.

  • 3/4 ounce Cointreau
  • 1/2 ounce lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce cranberry juice

Garnish: lime twist

Directions
  1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing tin and shake with ice.
  2. Strain into chilled martini glass.
  3. Garnish with lime twist.
