the Classic Sidecar cocktailIngredients
2 oz Cognac or Brandy
1 oz triple sec (orange liqueur)
3/4 oz fresh lemon juice, to taste
superfine sugar, for garnish (optional)


For 1 cocktail

Optional: prepare cocktail glass by making a slit in a lemon wedge and running the cut edge around the rim of the glass; then dip the rim in a saucer of superfine sugar to create a thin crust; chill the glass until needed.

Combine brandy or cognac, triple sec, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake well until chilled, about 10 seconds. Strain into prepared glass; garnish with a twist of orange or lemon peel, if the urge comes across.
