Today’s cocktail is the legendary Sidecar, which according to some reports was invented in the early 1930’s at Harry’s Bar in Paris for a patron who often rode in the sidecar of a motorcycle. Like the martini, the Sidecar has experienced a renaissance. The Sidecar offers a very appealing sweet-sour combination, along with a nice kick. Enjoy!


1 1/2 oz. Brandy
1/2 oz. Cointreau (or Triple Sec, as a substitute)
1/2 oz. Lemon or Lime Juice


1. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice.
2. Shake vigorously.
3. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
4. Garnish with orange slice or lemon twist.
5. Serve and repeat, as needed.
