Side Car Cocktail

This is a wonderful yummy cocktail involving Cognac and Cointreau. I passed a very important exam today and am celebrating by mixing myself something good. And no productive studying. I rimmed the glass in sugar and used the alcohols in the picture, I simply left out the orange peel. Enjoy

  • Sugar
  • 1.5 oz VS or VSOP Cognac
  • .75 oz Cointreau
  • .75 oz Fresh lemon juice
Garnish: Orange peel
Glass: Cocktail/martini
Coat the rim of a cocktail glass with sugar and set aside. (Do this a few minutes ahead of time so the sugar can dry and adhere well to the glass.) Add the remaining ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice. Shake, and strain into the prepared glass. Garnish with an orange peel.
