"Sidecar" Cocktail Recipe

Featured Cocktail of the Week


This cocktail recipe, known to have originated around WWI is most certainly making a comeback.  The sweetness of sugar and tartness of lemon is combined with smooth cognac or brandy.  So easy to make at home with just three ingredients.  Have fun and let me know how you like it.

  • 1.5 oz of Cognac (or Brandy)
  • 1 oz of Triple Sec (or Cointreau)
  • 1/2 oz of fresh Lemon Juice  
Pour ingredients  into a shaker 3/4 full of ice.  Shake until cold and frosty.  Moisten the rim of a cocktail glass with lemon then coat the edge of glass with sugar.  Strain the contents of shaker into the glass and garnish with a lemon twist.

 Cheers !
