The Ladies’ Sidecar is really similar to the Sidecar, but with reduced alcohol and more fruit juice. Personally, I prefer the regular Sidecar, but this one is nice when you want a light drink.
This is a smooth cocktail in which you barely taste the alcohol. The strongest flavor here is orange, which largely overwhelms the brandy. But the brandy does round out the citrus flavor to make it a touch more complex.
- 1 ounce brandy
- 1/4 ounce triple sec
- 1 ounce orange juice
- 1/4 ounce lemon juice
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, add the ingredients and shake well. Strain into a chilled martini glass.
