French Foodie Friday....

recipe and photo from here


This week has been a lovely sunny one and we have more of the same to come.

I can think of nothing nicer than a lovely refreshing cocktail after a hard week at the "office".

The citrus-tinged Sidecar is a cocktail that's said to have been created during WWI, though there is some controversy surrounding its precise origins.

While the Ritz Hotel in Paris claims to have introduced it, some stories credit a British inventor while others attribute it to an American army captain in Paris. Nevertheless, it rose to fame at Harry's Bar in Paris and remains a refreshing classic.

You Will Need:
1 1/2 oz (445ml) Cognac or Armagnac, or bourbon
1 oz (30 ml) Cointreau or triple sec orange liqueur
1/2 oz (15 ml) lemon juice
Lemon twist for garnish Sugar for rimming (optional)


  1. If desired, rim a chilled cocktail glass with sugar.
  2. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.
  3. Shake well.
  4. Strain into the prepared cocktail glass.
  5. Garnish with a lemon twist.

santé à tous, Leeann
