A super easy classic cocktail to make, The Sidecar has its origins in France with its mix of Cognac and Cointreau. No one is quite sure where this one was invented, but our bets on Paris!
Here is some equipment you might need:
- 3/4 oz Freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 3/4 oz Cointreau
- 1 1/2 oz Cognac
- Sugar, for the rim
- Step 1 Add all of the ingredients to a shaker
- Step 2 Add ice and shake until chilled
- Step 3 Strain into a sugar rimmed coupe glass
