  • Step 1

    First, zest the lemon. Use a sharp potato peeler and start at one end, winding down to the other end in a spiral fashion.

  • Step 2

    Take your zested lemon and cut it in half. Save one half for its juice (see below) and use the other half of the lemon to wet the rim of a small wine glass, Once moistened, ‘crust’ the rim by dipping it in a saucer of fine sugar, making every effort to avoid getting it on the inside of the glass.

  • Step 3

    Put all the liquid ingredients in a mixing beaker, add 5 ml of the lemon juice and stir with cubed ice for 40 seconds. Strain into the prepared glass and spiral
the lemon zest up the inside.
