This is the type of drink you wanna drink at a party or on a date. It just has this badass style about it that I love so much. However, sidecars can be drunk at any time. I decided to do a twist with it because I was out of triple sec and somehow wanted a drink that had a pop to it and of course, I love my cocktails fancy and pretty.
It is served straight up! A cocktail glass of choice is a coupe.
If you have np cognac you can sub another brandy. If you wanna get creative and twist it all the way around. Do tequila I won’t mind, and that for sure will be a badass as well.
I will always prefer you to use fresh ingredients. But sub if you have to.
Garnishes are optional but it makes you fancy!
