Cocktail Recipe: The Classic Sidecar

sidecar sidecar sidecar
The Academy Awards are this weekend which is the perfect excuse to invite a few friends over to sip cocktails and judge the red carpet.

The last few years I served champagne cocktails and/or martinis but this season I’m feeling inspired to swirl up some sidecars. The cognac is so smooth and the classic cocktail just feels appropriate for a night of Hollywood glamor. Doesn’t it?

Here’s how to make it:

In a shaker full of ice add:
2 parts Cognac
½ part Orange Liquor
¼ part Lemon Juice

Swirl, pour, garnish with lemon wedge. Cheers!
