The recipe from the Rainbow Room menu was reprinted so often that it became the standard…it didn’t hurt that it tasted great either. The flaming of the orange oil over the top of the drink (our trademark at Rainbow) added a unique flavor note that the drink, even made the same way lacked without.
1 1/2 oz. Citron Vodka
1/2 oz. Cointreau
1/4 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
1 oz. Cranberry Juice
Shake all ingredients with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange peel.
