Sidecar Riff Off feat. Dampfwerk Pear Brandy
It’s all in the name of the cocktail… It’s a sidecar riff, with balancing flavors of brandy and pear. Just like in the movie, Pitch Perfect, it’s all about working together to find the right character, and if the Cocktail Codex book has taught me anything, it is about investing in your basics.
1 oz Cognac (I used our Grape Brandy for kicks and giggles)
1/2 oz Dampfwerk Pear Brandy
1 oz Pierre Ferrand dry curaçao
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
1 tsp Cinnamon Syrup**
**Cocktail Codex recipe
** You can EASILY make your own cinnamon syrup, versus buying store bought. It will keep for a couple of weeks, and surely you will be adding this recipe into your repertoire.
Add all ingredients into a shaker with ice. This cocktail is meant to be shaken, so shake, shake, shake!
