Arizona Tradewinds Cocktail (inspired by the Dutch Tradewinds)

This recipe is really a cocktail called the Dutch Tradewinds, but the box of lemons came to us in the middle of a snowstorm from my aunt in Arizona so we decided to name it the Arizona Tradewinds.  It's amazing what a box of citrus in the middle of a storm can do to sooth the cold weather blues.

Ingredients for 2 drinks

2 shots jenever (Dutch gin)
1 shot triple sec or orange liqueur
1 shot fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 teaspoons sugar

1. Fill cocktail shaker with ice
2. Mix sugar in with lemon juice
3. Combine all ingredients in the cocktail shaker and shake about 30 seconds
4. Pour into chilled martini glass and garnish with a twist of lemon
