Upper Cut Cocktail Info

Cointreau, at its 40% ABV, is the star of this cocktail! We almost use double the amount of Cointreau compared to the cachaca. This mix reverses the usual roles of the spirits for a fruit-forward cocktail you usually find where the Cointreau is only a flavor addition, not the main character.
