Cocktail of the Week: Sidecar
This prohibition-era classic has questionable origins but the refreshing citrus zing combined with spicy cognac will leave you with no doubt that it is time to mix another!

3 oz Cognac
1 ½ oz Cointreau
1 ½ oz Lemon Juice
I slice of Lemon
A few tablespoons of Sugar
Ice
A cocktail shaker
Makes Two

Wipe the rims of two glasses with the Lemon Slice to moisten. Pour sugar on a plate and rotate the edges of the glasses through the sugar until the rim has been coated. Half fill the cocktail shaker with ice. Pour Cognac, Cointreau and Lemon Juice over Ice. Cover and shake. Strain into the two prepared glasses. Sip and enjoy!
