Description

The Vodka Sidecar is sweet tart and zingy, a spin on the classic cocktail using vodka instead of brandy. Serve with a sugar rim for the full effect!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 ounces (4 tablespoons) vodka
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) Cointreau or Triple Sec
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) lemon juice
  • For the garnish: Lemon twist or slice
  • 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 the vodka, Cointreau, and lemon juice 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 slice.
