One of my clients has their big annual fundraising dinner tonight, so it’s been a crazy few weeks getting ready for it. As soon as the dinner is over and I can get home and take off these high heels and peel off this dress, I’m making myself a well-deserved Sidecar. My recipe is reeeeeaaaaaaallly precise. *snort* Ready? Here we go:
Giant ice cube in glass.
Squeeze juice from two small limes over the giant ice cube. You can use lemons, but I prefer limes. It’s smoother and more awesome with limes.
Then, pour in three glugs of brandy (or cognac) and two glugs of Cointreau (or Grand Marnier).
Stick your finger in and swirl it around. Or hey, fancy pants, use a spoon or cocktail stirrer.
