Tired of that thousandth Long Island Iced Tea? No more apple martinis say you? Here are 5 classic cocktail recipes that you should become very familiar with. Now. Come back and thank us later.
1. The Sidecar
There are tons of stories out there in regards to the origins of this drink. What we do now is that it originated in Paris during the first World War. The version we like says that the drink was created by a Parisian military officer who rode back and forth in a chauffeur-driven motorcycle sidecar to drink this cocktail at a bar. Sweet from the Cointreau, cool and refreshing from the lemon, strong from the cognac - God bless that Parisian officer for combining all three. In a Cocktail Shaker with ice, combine the following:
- 2 oz V.S.O.P. grade Cognac ( Hennessy Privelege)
- 1 oz cointreau
- 1 oz fresh lemon juice (no substitute)
Optional sugar rim, shake all three ingredients and strain into a chilled martini glass. A votre sante!
