This is NOT what you think
Who knew you can enjoy a sidecar beverage?! Enjoy this drink dating back to the early 1920’s. I found this excerpt on the Drink Of The Week website (http://www.drinkoftheweek.com/special/sidecar.htm) Boy, sounds all too familiar.
When we began our Sidecar journey, I had no idea so many types of Sidecars existed. There are Sidecars for those who prefer brandy, cognac, gin, vodka and even irish whisky. Join me in a toast to the Sidecar with a few of the concoctions listed below. After all, it would be a shame if the Noble Sidecar were once again forgotten.
Standard garnish: Sugared glass, lemon rind
- One part brandy or Cognac
- One part Cointreau
- One part lemon juice
Mix the ingredients in a shaker half full of ice. Strain and serve in a sugar-rimmed glass. Garnish with a strip of lemon rind
Have one for me!
