If a White Lady (that’s Cointreau, lemon juice and gin) were a person, she’d be a bit like Cinderella; elegant, understated and mysterious, the kind of lady who leaves you wanting more when she disappears at midnight.
If a Femme Fatale (that’s a twist on the White Lady, using Cointreau Noir instead of Cointreau) were a person, she’d be just like a White Lady. Except she’d kill you with her bare, manicured hands before she disappeared at midnight.
15ml Cointreau Noir
15ml lemon juice
Cocktail glass, or the most elegant glass you’ve got
Add all ingredients to a shaker that’s half-full of ice. Shake hard, then strain into the glass.
DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY
Easy to love, but be warned; it’s a killer in disguise.
The Femme Fatale was created by the 52 Cocktails team. It’s based on the version of a White Lady that appears in Margaret Fulton’s Book of Cocktails & Party Drinks (Octopus Books, 1984).
