To ‘brulée’ the rim of a glass means to coat the rim in a sugar-based mixture and then set it aflame so the sugar caramelizes and creates a delicious crust.


  • 1-1/2 ounces tequila
  • 1 tablespoon orange curacao
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon simple syrup
  • 1 pinch cinnamon
  • Sugar and cinnamon mixture to rim glass


  1. Place some of the sugar mixture onto a plate. Run some orange curacao around the rim of a glass to moisten and then dip the rim into the sugar, pressing gently to adhere. Carefully torch the rim and then set aside to cool.
  2. Put the tequila, orange curacao, lemon juice, simple syrup and cinnamon into a cocktail shaker with ice.
  3. Vigorously shake the mixture for 35 seconds and then strain into the prepared cocktail glass; serve immediately.
