Booze You Can Use: Have a Sidecar

The Sidecar has long been one of my favorite cocktails, and I realized earlier this week after reading this article about P.J. Clarke's bartender Doug Frost (who claims to make the best Sidecar in the world and is convenently located downstairs from my office) that I've been neglecting it lately. Will rectify that this weekend after I buy some lemons.

1 1/2 ounces cognac
3/4 ounce lemon juice
3/4 ounce Cointreau

Shake over ice and strain into a sugar-rimmed cocktail glass.
