Union Avenue Sidecar
Ingredients Available at Martha’s Vineyard
Although the classic Sidecar was originally made with brandy, the Bourbon Sidecar has become a crowd favorite for its perfect balance of sweet and citrus. The Martha’s Reserve Barrel from Woodford Distillery provides just the right balance.
- 1-1/2 ounces of Martha’s Barrel Woodford Reserve Bourbon
- 1 ounce orange liqueur, preferably Cointreau
- 1/2 ounce lemon juice sugar for rimming the glass
- Lemon wedge for garnish
Combine the Bourbon, orange liqueur, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously for 15 to 20 seconds. Strain into a coupe glass rimmed with sugar. Garnish with the lemon wedge.
