Sicilian Side Car

Or a Sicilian Side Track - I have a post ready on how we used our Cherry Bitters but this week I've been thinking of a dear friend who is moving away from the area and in her honor I made one of her favorite cocktails - the Side Car. But why Sicilian? I used Solerno blood orange liqueur instead of Cointreau and celebrated my friend's Italian roots. (I totally made that last part up - I'm all out of Cointreau!)

2oz brandy or cognac
1oz Solerno Liqueur
1oz freshly squeezed lemon juice

Shake all together with ice and strain into a chilled glass.

Here's to new adventures and the mountain air of Colorado!

  1. I can't believe I didn't leave a comment here when I read it the first time months ago! I'm making up my grocery list for Christmas and came back here to look at your Christmas cocktails from years gone by.
