“The oft-found recipe for this wonderfully named spinoff the Sidecar includes rum and brandy … while the uncommon recipe in Ted Saucier´s pulchritudinous Bottoms Up calls for just one base spirit, the brandy, with an accent of Benedictine; this is far superior.”, writes Dale DeGroff in The Essential Cocktail. And here it is!
1 and 1/2 oz. Cognac, 1/2 oz. Benedictine, 1/2 oz. Cointreau, 3/4 oz. Lemon Juice, garnish: Flamed Orange Peel
Combine ingredients, shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a flamed orange peel.
A very satisfying sweet drink with complex flavors. The threesome team of cognac, Benedictine and Cointreau is a perfect melange
