Description

This Hennessy Sidecar recipe is the best way to use this popular Cognac! Blend it with Cointreau and lemon for the perfect classic sour cocktail.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 ounces Hennessy Cognac
  • 1 ounce Cointreau
  • 1 ounce lemon juice
  • For the garnish: lemon twist or orange twist
  • Superfine sugar* rim, optional

Instructions

  1. Cut a notch in a lemon wedge, then run the lemon around the rim of a cocktail glass. Dip the edge of the rim into a plate of superfine sugar.
  2. Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with a handful of ice and shake until cold.
  3. Strain the drink into the prepared glass. Garnish with a lemon twist or orange twist.

Notes

*Superfine sugar works well for a sugar rim since it sticks to the glass better than granulated sugar. You can use granulated sugar if it’s all you have; note it can tend to fall off into the drink, making it taste a shade sweeter.
