Review:

Spirituous and on the tart side of balanced, 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 the suggested optional 10 to 15ml chilled water.

History:
