Sidecar cocktail



In celebration of my new racing green Mini Cooper! My first new car in nine years!

From 100 Cocktails: How to Mix Them by ‘Bernard’ –

1/4 gill of brandy

1/8 gill of dry gin

The juice of 1/4 lemon

1/2 shakerful of broken ice

Half fill the shaker with broken ice and squeeze in the juice of 1/4 lemon. Then add the brandy and the dry gin. Shake well and pass through a strainer into a cocktail glass.

This is a great favourite among the French and is fairly strong, apparently.


“I’m the spare driver!”
