All this talk of Sidecars - when I realized that I'd found the Pierre Ferrand Cognac at the LCBO last week - I had to make one.

Interesting choice of glass style for your Sidecar, Kerry!  With Sidecars on my mind I had just been looking at a thread on vintage cocktail glasses when I saw your post.

Followed the directions that FrogPrincesse mentioned in the Sidecar thread - 2 ounces Cognac, 3/4 ounce dry curacao, 3/4 ounce lemon, dash each of Regan's and Angostura orange, 1 tsp syrup (used cane syrup).

 

My favourite glass by the way!

I'm keeping one eye on the LCBO site just in case the Pierre Ferrand makes it to this end of the province.


It's kinda like wrestling a gorilla... you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is tired.

Found it in Vintages.

The closest Vintages store is 5 hours away so not convenient but doable if I or someone I know goes there for any reason. I'll keep a watch for it but it's really not a huge deal if it doesn't get this far. There are a few things still on my list that I really want but, in general, I've slowed down significantly on the booze buying.

Tonight's cocktail - a Margara.  Wanted to try the Creole Shrubb for the first time.

That one sounds tasty.

The Choke Artist - suggested on the drinks thread.  Just made a half - back to being a lightweight after not drinking much for a while.

How was that one? I added it to my "drinks to try" list after seeing it in the drinks thread but haven't got to it yet. One of these days I'm going to have to quit adding to that list or start drinking more. It's getting ridiculously long.

I quite enjoyed it - went for that one because I needed to open the sherry for a chocolate project.

Paper Plane tonight.  It would appear I haven't been taking my drinking seriously enough lately!
