If you have never had this cocktail before I guarantee it is going to be a favorite. The sugared rim adds a kick to the flavours giving it a sweet balance to its slightly sharp taste. You’ll soon find yourself making excuses to make it everyday.
Incase you are feeling adventurous, you could also experiment and substitute the cognac or bourbon with tequilla, which pair up quite nicely if you ask me!
The Side Car
- 1 1/2 oz of Cognac (or Bourbon)
- 1 oz of Triple Sec (or any other orange flavoured liqour)
- 1/2 oz of Lemon Juice
- Sugar rim (optional)
Mix the ingredients in a shaker and give it a good shake. Pour into cocktail glass
