Try your hand at recreating a classic 1920s cocktail, the sidecar. It’s easy to adapt – simply use cognac, or go with equal parts cognac, triple sec and lemon juice.Print
- 50ml cognac
- 25ml triple sec
- 25ml lemon juice
- handful of ice
- dash of Angostura bitters (optional)
Put a coupe glass in the fridge to chill. Tip all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker.
- Shake well, until the outside of the shaker feels cold, then strain the cocktail into the chilled glass. If the lemon juice is too sharp, add the bitters to taste.
