Comment:

A riff on the classic Sidecar that's even simpler to make but equally tasty. Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge consists of 55% cognac so there is no need to add cognac to make a great Sidecar, simply add lemon juice. This drink benefits from a touch of dilution so also works well served, strained over ice in an old-fashioned glass.

Origin:

Created June 2005 by yours truly (Simon Difford), London, England.
