BRANDY

CLASSICS

From Cognac to Pisco. Brandy was the liquor of choice in the 15th and 16th century. It's been pretty popular ever since and helped kickstart the

cross-Atlantic triangle trade.

The most sensible thing to do to people you hate is to drink their Brandy.

Pisco Sour

Pisco, lime, lemon, simple syrup,

egg white, bitters

2 oz Pisco

1/2 oz fresh lime juice

1/2 oz fresh lemon juice

3/4 oz simple syrup

1 oz egg white (usually one egg)

Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker. Without ice, shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Add ice and shake again for about 8 seconds. 

Double strain into a coupe and garnish with drops of Angostura bitters.

Sidecar

Cognac, Cointreau, lemon, 

cane sugar syrup

2 oz Cognac

(recommend Pierre Ferrand 1840 Cognac)

1/2 oz Cointreau

3/4 oz fresh lemon juice

1/4 oz cane sugar syrup

Add all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake for 8-10 seconds and strain into a Nick & Nora glass.

 

Garnish with an orange twist. 

This version is the one on the left. A tradional Sidecar does not have sugar in it but places it around the rim like the glass on the right. However, I find most people find it too abrasive and I also enjoy the version on the left more as well. On the left each sip is the exact same, whereas the right is not.
