TAKE A SEC TO ENJOY SUMMER
HOW ABOUT IT? It's incredibly easy to make and lovely to enjoy on a hot day. The sidecar uses three simple ingredients; Brandy, Triple Sec and fresh lemon juice. While the recipe calls for 1.5 ounces of Brandy, 1.5 ounces of Triple Sec and .5 ounces of fresh lemon juice, I prefer to add amounts to taste. I mix in a cocktail shaker full of ice then pour into a sugar-rimmed glass (place sugar on small plate, wet lip of glass and dip in sugar). CHEERS TO THAT!
QUICK TIP: For cool summer drinks, make ice cubes out of cranberry juice, orange juice and other favorites then add to a glass with vodka and soda for a special twist to an old favorite!
