One for the Classics

It’s back to the classics this week. I wanted to make a traditional beverage that I haven’t really gotten to enjoy much of, despite its simplicity. Whether you’re in the camp of a London or Paris origin for this drink, one thing is certain: It’s classy. Ladies and gentlemen, The Sidecar:


• 2 oz cognac
• 1.5 oz Triple Sec or Cointreau
• 0.5 oz lemon juice

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until cold. Pour into a glass over ice, and enjoy!
