Main Spirit Cognac
Difficulty Easy
Technique Shaken

Inspired by the classic New Orleans Brandy Crusta, which is in itself a Cognac-based twist on the Old Fashioned, the Sidecar is a drink that will certainly take you for a ride. But understand, with Cognac, Cointreau and Lemon Juice, this really is just a gussied up Cognac sour.


  • 2 oz. 60ml Cognac
  • 0.75 oz. 23ml Cointreau
  • 0.75 oz. 23ml Lemon Juice
Display: oz. ml.
