THE COCKTAIL HOUR: The Cointreau Teese

I know we usually try to start off the weekend with a delicious libation but for summer's last hurrah marked by the long weekend, I thought we could give the season of sunshine a proper send-off!
This violet-hued lovely named for Miss Dita Von Teese, Cointreau's brand ambassador, is just as delightful to taste as it is to look at.
Bottoms up!

The Cointreau Teese
1 1/2 oz. Cointreau
3/4 oz. apple juice
1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
a piece of fresh ginger (for glass rimming)
Combine, and rim glass with a little essence of ginger.
Serves 1

How do you mark the last days of summer?
