Silent Third Cocktail Recipe

This drink is sometimes made with equal parts of each ingredient, but in my opinion, it hides too much of the base ingredient when doing it this way.


Silent Third Cocktail

  • 2 oz. Scotch Whisky
  • 1 oz. Cointreau
  • Juice of One Lemon



In a mixing glass filled with ice, add the scotch and cointreau.  Squeeze in two halves of lemon.  Cap off with a tin and shake well.  Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.  Garnish with a lemon.

Enjoy this and all other alcohol responsibly.
