A few years ago I made an extravagant dinner for my husband’s birthday. Along with that dinner, I served a cocktail that we immediately fell in love with: the Sidecar.
Warning: potent cocktail. May cause giddiness.
Sidecar Cocktail Recipe
- 1 cup good brandy
- 1/2 cup Triple Sec
- 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- Lemon zest or Maraschino cherries
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add brandy, Triple Sec and lemon juice. Shake well to chill and strain into cocktail glass. Garnish with lemon zest or cherries and serve.
