Cocktail of the Week: Side Car

If you're in the mood for a classic cocktail, why not give the Sidecar a try? It's always fun to mix up an old favorite and see how it compares to your current go-to drink.


  • 2 oz. Brandy
  • 1 oz. Orange Liqueur
  • 0.75 oz. Lemon Juice


  1. Add all the ingredients to a shaker with ice, shake until well combined and chilled.
  2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  3. Garnish with a sugared rim and orange peel, and enjoy!
