Cocktail Wednesday - Boston Side Car

This week's drink was the Boston Side Car.  This was my SIL's dad's pick. Recipe from here.


This is the picture from Missouri .. my sister sent one from Pennsylvania too, but I couldn't figure out how to download it.

Ingredients:

Rum 3/4 oz
Brandy 3/4 oz
Triple Sec 3/4 oz
Lime juice 1/2 oz


I put ice in a shaker, added the alcohol and lime juice, shook it, poured it in the glasses, and garnished with lemon and lime.



We had had a side car before (see my earlier post). I don't remember liking that one at all.  This one was very citrus-y so I liked it better.  Comparing the recipes, the other one had lemon juice and no rum (but it doubled up on the brandy).  So a different twist on the same drink.


My YD takes the pictures and they are so very artsy ... Nevada didn't make it this week, though she did supply the brandy. 


Next week it'll probably be a mint julep.  I want to try a Singapore Sling too ...

Cheers!!
