cocktail hour {the sidecar}

This image inspired this week's cocktail - the sidecar. Thought to have been invented during World War I in Paris, the sidecar is a no mess, no stress cocktail. There are many variations, but here's a basic recipe.


- 1 1/2 oz bourbon or cognac
- 3/4 oz cointreau
- 1/4 oz lemon juice

Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
