  • Moisten the edge of a glass with lime wedge, then dip it in salt. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Add agave wine, Cointreau, lime juice, marmalade, and sugar; shake 30 seconds. Fill glass with ice, strain drink over top, and garnish with orange and lime wedges.


Cook's Notes

For a sweeter taste, switch in apricot preserves for the marmalade.
