A Cheeky Sidecar
Updated: Aug 17, 2019
Due to the nature of my job (shiftwork), George's job (which sometimes involves travel) and the commitments of day to day life, G and I don't always get to spend weekends together. So when we do, we like to do something a bit different. Be it a day trip somewhere, a new place for coffee or a little cocktail hour at home in the evening. Last weekend we made Sidecars (a new one for us), so I thought I'd share our recipe!
Ingredients for one drink (multiply as necessary)
Two measures Cognac
One measure Cointreau
3/4 measure freshly squeezed lemon juice
Lemon wedge and granulated sugar to rim glass
Lemon twist to garnish
I like to serve in a champagne saucer.
Use the wedge of lemon to moisten the rim of your glass
Dip into the sugar until you've got good coverage.
Pour the Cognac, Cointreau and lemon juice into a cocktail shaker and drop in a few ice cubes
Shake well and strain into the glass
Cut a strip of peel from the used lemon and twist to garnish
Sip sip, hooray!
