Sidecar Cocktail Recipe
This classic cocktail is smooth and citrusy!
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 rinds and 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 by placing it upside down on the cutting board. Next 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. Garnish with lemon peel.
