The Sidecar

The Sidecar has been referred to as the best cocktail to come out of prohibition. It’s a tasty drink consisting of equal parts of 3 ingredients.

3/4 Cointreau
3/4 Lemon juice
3/4 Cognac

Shake well with cracked ice. Partially rim your cocktail glass with lemon juice and sugar. Strain and pour. Enjoy.

    I once saw a comedian who opened his set with, “I’m drinking a Sidecar tonight…because I’m 80 years old.” This was a few years before the cocktail revival was in full swing. I appreciated the joke because I almost exclusively drank gimlets at the time.
