The Rum Sidecar, as you can probably guess, is basically a traditional Sidecar in which rum replaces cognac. But the alcohol ratios are a little different in the Rum Sidecar, and this one doesn’t call for a sugar-rimmed glass because the natural sweetness of the rum is enough.
This cocktail is of average strength, with two ounces of liquor in it, and is great for savoring during a nice after-dinner conversation or while reading a book on an evening in.
- 1 ounce golden or white rum
- 1 ounce Cointreau
- 1 ounce lemon juice
Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a martini glass.
