Legendary Sidecar

by James Stevenson

Win a trip to Ireland with Lambay Whiskey and check out this St. Patrick’s Day Sidecar made with their Small Batch Blend, which is finished in cognac casks. When I was approached by Lambay Whiskey to partner with a unique cocktail that fitted their unique whiskey I did my due diligence and discovered how unique this whiskey really was. This whiskey is distilled on a privately owned island off the Irish coast, which has all sorts of amazing wildlife running around, like wallabies and puffins; how awesome is that?

I couldn’t get enough of the traditional Sidecar cocktail in France and wanted to mix one up with whiskey to see how it would go, and it turned out delicious. I used both lemon and lime juice, as I wanted to bring a more subtle citrus tang to the sidecar.

Recipe:

  • 2 ounces of Lambay
  • 3/4 triple sec
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • 1/4 ounce lime juice
  • Sugar (for rim)

Method:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice
  2. Shake to chill and combine ingredients
  3. Rim your cocktail glass with sugar
  4. Strain into a rimmed cocktail glass
  5. Garnish & Enjoy!
