Invented in the early 1900′s and was popular until the beginning of World War II, the sidecar has been making a comeback. Sidecars come using a variety of liquors, brandy, gin, vodka and irish whisky, but cognac is the original.
1 1/2 oz. VS or VSOP cognac
3/4 oz. Cointreau
3/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass with a sugared rim.
Garnish with an orange peel.
