Sherry Sidecar

A sidecar for when the full-proof version is just a little too much.

A sidecar is one of my favorite cocktails because it’s everything I love about cocktails: rich, velvety, and full of flavor. This sherry sidecar captures everything I normally love about a standard sidecar while significantly lowering the ABV. Enjoy this version on nights when it gets too hot to have a lot of booze or when you’re close to being out of brandy but still have a hankering for something delicious.

1 1/4 oz Amontillado Sherry

3/4 oz Brandy

1/2 oz Dry Curaçao

1/2 oz Lemon

Bar Spoon Rich Sugar Syrup (2:1)

Lemon Peel

  1. Combine all ingredients, including lemon peel, into a shaker tin with ice.
  2. Regal shake for about 40 seconds or until shaker tin freezes in your hands.
  3. Double strain into a coupe glass, and enjoy!
