  2. Make the sour mix by briskly stirring together the 2 1/4 cups water, lemon juice, 1/4 cup sugar and egg white; set aside.
  3. Combine the ice cubes, tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, 1 ounce of the simple syrup and 1/2 cup of the sour mix in a jug; stir vigorously to infuse the ice, 8 to 15 seconds.
