Cocktail Hour || Sidecar Cocktail Recipe
A classic and grown up cocktail
Servings: 2 cocktails
- Superfine Sugar for serving
- 2 lemons you'll need 2 ounces of fresh lemon juice as well as the peel for garnish
- 4 ounces Cognac or other type of brandy
- 2 ounces orange liqueur I really like the Patrón Citrónge
Begin by peeling a large section of each of the lemon rind sand placing it aside for garnish.
Next, cut each of the lemons into halves.
Place sugar on a small plate. Moisten half of rim of a coupe glass with a little of the lemon juice and dip each glass into the sugar; shake off the excess and set aside.
Combine cognac, orange liqueur, and 2 ounces of fresh squeezed lemon juice in a cocktail shaker. Fill shaker with ice, cover, and shake vigorously until outside of shaker is very cold, about 20 seconds.
Strain cocktail into glass and enjoy immediately.
