How to make a blood orange sidecar
I may die being better with a shaker than I am with an oven.
Ingredients for 1
|Sugar (for the rim of the glass)|
|Orange slice (for garnish)|
|.75 oz||Cointreau (I made several, and we liked Cointreau over TripleSec)|
|.5 oz||Fresh squeezed blood orange juice (this requires about one orange)|
Agh. Inconsistent sig figs!
- Frost glass by first rubbing orange slice around the rim (it’s cute! it’ll be a dark pink color.)
- Dip rim into a plate of sugar
- Fill shaker with ice
- Add cognac/brandy, Cointreau, and orange juice to shaker
- Shake it like a Polaroid picture!
- Strain into glass
Done and done.
