Welcoming Fall with a Sidecar

One of my favorite cocktails of all time. Welcome, fall.


8 ounces Cognac
4 ounces Cointreau
2 ounces lemon juice

Set ice and water in cocktail glasses to chill them. Combine ingredients in a small pitcher and stir. Pour some into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Empty the water from the glasses. Shake vigorously and strain into the glasses. Garnish with a lemon twist. You may also rim the glass with sugar, but we don’t usually bother.

Yield: 4 drinks.
