Sidecar

MixnSip's picture
Here's another one of those classic cocktails, the Sidecar, that seems to have gone by the wayside. One of the few good drinks to emerge during Prohibition It's a rather elegant and well-balanced drink of sweetness and citrus with a solid body of cognac. I'd rather forgotten about it myself but you can be sure it's now back on my list of favorites.

  Triple sec 1 Ounce
  Lime juice 1 Ounce
