Review:

A sidecar-like cocktail with a good balance between sweet (triple sec) and sour (lemon juice), fortified by cognac and smoothed by Lillet Blanc.

History:

Hey Hey is a song by Eric Clapton and also a long-running variety television programme on Australian television. However, this cocktail is thought to predate both. The origin of the Hey Hey cocktail is unknown but its original calling for 'Kina Lillet' dates the drink before 1986 as this is when the product's name was changed to Lillet Blanc.
