This cocktail is essentially the same as the modern Side Car except that it usually specifies the use of Courvoisier Cognac as the brandy of choice and Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge as the orange liqueur of choice in the construction of the recipe. It really doesn’t matter what we call this particular bar drink; the point is that it is delicious!
2 oz Courvoisier VS
1 1/2 oz Grand Marnier
1 1/2 oz Lemon Juice
3/4 oz sugar syrup
Lemon Slice (optional)
Add the first four ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice
Shake until the sides frost
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass
Garnish with a lemon slice (optional)
Please Enjoy Responsibly!
