The Knicker Twist Straight Up Cocktails and Spirits


  • 2 ounces vodka of your choice (I use 80 proof Luksusova potato vodka)
  • 1 ounce curacao or triple sec [I used Cointreau, which isn't quite as sweet]
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice (goes without saying that fresh is best)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons apricot jam* [I used store-bought jam, scooping up the jellied bits and avoiding the apricot pieces and pulp.]
  • Garnish: macerated dried apricot*
