Sidecar

Sidecar cocktail

Type: Cocktail

Traditionally made with cognac, orange liqueur and lemon juice, the Sidecar cocktail is a boozy drink that is slightly on the sour side. A sugared glass rim or the addition of some sugar syrup seems to be increasingly popular today; probably because of our sweet tooth.
