Sidecar

更新日期:19 小时前

Not saying you need to grab a bottle of XO for this cocktail, but Sidecar doesn't work with a subpar brandy. Nor does it work without just the right amount of acid. Too little, the drink becomes bland. Too much, we lose the alluring aroma of the brandy.


This cocktail starts off a bit tart. As it warms, brandy's own complexities and its harmony with citrus becomes more pronounced. Sidecar is wonderful anytime, although I enjoy it best as a refreshing digestif.
