Sidecar

Getting the balance right on this drink is challenging. It can certainly vary depending on which orange liqueur you are using. This is the ratio I currently use.

  • 1½ oz Cognac or brandy
  • 1 oz orange liqueur
  • ¾ oz lemon juice
  • garnish: orange twist, discarded

Shake vigorously with ice. Strain into a coupe glass.

Express the oils from an orange twist over the drink, then discard the peel.
