Sometimes simple is best. Add the Sidecar to your favorite easy to make cocktail menu. It takes just a few minutes to whip up this uncomplicated recipe but don’t underestimate it, because it packs in a whole lot of flavor.

Don’t hesitate to mix up the ratio, but to start you off we’re suggesting:

  • 1.5 oz. Cognac
  • .75 oz. Cointreau
  • .75 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
  • Sugar
  • Ice
  • Cocktail glass

Prep your glass by giving it a quick dip in lemon juice before rimming it with sugar. Combine the Cognac, Cointreau and lemon juice in your shaker and fill the remaining space with ice. Shake and strain into your cocktail glass. Finish it off with a lemon slice for a citrus garnish.
