A classic 3-ingredient sour cocktail recipe! The Sidecar is a classic cocktail recipe everyone should know.


  • 1 ½ ounce cognac VS or VSOP, such as Rémy Martin
  • 1 ounce orange liqueur, such as Cointreau
  • ¾ ounce lemon juice


  • Add everything to a shaker filled halfway with ice. Shake vigorously until well-chilled.
  • Strain into a coupe glass and garnish with a lemon twist.


You can shake up to 2 cocktails at a time. We don't recommend making more in a batch.
