The addition of orange juice and an orange zest twist supposedly gives this otherwise classic Sidecar a feminine twist. Classically, this cocktail does not contain sugar syrup so is a touch sourer. Hence, if you have a dry palate then omit the sugar and if you have a sweet palate then consider increasing the sugar syrup to 5ml (1/6oz).
