Our Ideal Sidecar
As so named in the ‘Cocktail Codex’, by Alex Day, Nick Fauchald and David Kaplan. We’ve been working our way through this brilliant book so expect a lot more cocktails!
For one perfect drink;
1 1/2 oz. VSOP Cognac (or Brandy)
1 oz. Pierre Ferrand dry curaçao
3/4 oz. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 t. simple syrup (equal parts white sugar and water by weight, stirred together until sugar has dissolved)
one orange twist to garnish
Shake all ingredients with ice then strain into a a chilled coupe. Express (twist) the orange twist over ‘Our Ideal Sidecar’, then gently rub it around the rim of the glass and place it into the drink.
