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!
