#DOTW: Chambord Sidecar

It’s official: spring is here. As you might know by now, I like to line up my cocktails with the seasons, the weather, the holiday. I think most bartenders or recipe creators do that, and yes, spring is here. So, this week’s cocktail is a little on the lighter side, matching the warm weather today. I don’t know about you, but I love me a good old fashioned Sidecar, and this one ups the ante just a bit. It’s delicious and upbeat, and you should have a few tonight!

What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Remy 1738 (or quality cognac of your choice)
  • 1 oz Chambord
  • 1 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • splash of simple syrup

Combine all ingredients in a Martini shaker with ice, shake well. Pour into Martini glass and garnish with a lemon slice and a raspberry.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
