Sidecar

The simple syrup isn’t traditional, but that’s how I learned it, and I like the touch of additional sweetness.
  • 2 oz Cognac
  • ¾ oz orange liqueur
  • ¾ oz lemon juice
  • ¼ oz simple syrup
  • 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.
