Spirituous and just on the sour side, the sugar rim is considered by some to be integral to this classic cocktail. Dilution is key to perfecting a Sidecar so if using ice straight from a freezer (rather than an ice machine) then consider adding 10 to 15ml chilled water. In place of a sugar rim, some may want to add 2.5ml or more sugar syrup or see my Sidecar recipe.
