Cocktail Hour: The Sidecar

The Ritz in Paris lay claim to inventing this drink after the 1st world war, and who am I to argue with them? It's such a classic drink, and it's a great way to kick off your week. If you can kick off your week in The Hemingway Bar at The Ritz, well that would be fabulous. But if that's unlikely to happen, here's how to make one yourself:

You'll need:
  • 35ml Brandy
  • 25ml triple sec
  • lemon juice
Mix it!

Shake everything up with some ice, pour into a sugar-rimmed glass. Best enjoyed whilst lounging in a giant leather sofa, I'd imagine.

  1. Am drinking one now - and very lovely it is too. Tell me, am I an unforgivable philistine for putting a maraschino in my Sidecar? I do hope so... it's on a vintage Miss World cocktail pick and everything! x

  2. It's your cocktail, make it up as you go along! But orange would taste nicer :-)

  3. Can anyone recommend a good cocktail making class in London - preferably one not overrun by hennighters....

    thanks
