The Sidecar (cocktail)

A strong(ish) drink made with lemon juice, cognac and Cointreau and served in a glass sweetened with a bit of sugar. It was invented in Paris in 1931. A nice way to relax after a long day :).
More on the history of the drink here.
Recipe source: here

Last year: Pears with rosemary sugar dust (raw vegan).
Two years ago: Beefsteaks in apple juice.
Three years ago: Broccoli and pancetta orecchiette, Noodle salad with black sesame (vegan) and Chocolate and stout cupcakes (Irish).

Ingredients (makes 2):
  • 1 lemon
  • superfine sugar
  • 30 ml cognac
  • 10 ml Cointreau
  • 2 lemon slices

Juice the lemon. Rub the rims of the glasses with the lemon pulp, then dip into the superfine sugar.
Mix the lemon juice with the cognac and Cointreau and pour into the glasses. Decorate with the lemon slices.
It's done. :)
