Traditional Sidecar Recipe

The Sidecar is a classic cocktail that is made with brandy, orange liqueur, and lemon juice. It is a refreshing and flavorful drink that is perfect for any occasion.


  • 2 ounces Odessa Brandy
  • 3/4 ounce Cointreau
  • 3/4 ounce lemon juice
  • Sugar for rimming the glass (optional)


  1. If you want to rim the glass with sugar, wet the rim of a cocktail glass with lemon juice and dip it in sugar.
  2. Add the Odessa Brandy, Cointreau, and lemon juice to a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  3. Shake well and strain into the prepared glass.
  4. Garnish with an orange twist, if desired.


  • For a sweeter cocktail, add more Cointreau.
  • For a tarter cocktail, add more lemon juice.
  • If you don't have a cocktail shaker, you can use a jar with a lid. Just make sure to shake it vigorously.
