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)
- Combine all ingredients, including lemon peel, into a shaker tin with ice.
