cocktails & cars are good for partying

one of my favorite old-timey drink is the sidecar: a mix of brandy, orange liqueur, and lemon or lime juice. not only is it delicious, but it makes me feel like a flapper--especially when paired with red lipstick. (you can read some of the varying stories of where the drink's name originated here). but this past week i tried an incredible twist on the classic--a pear and cardamom sidecar at the old queen's head. and it was divine. there are many recipes out there to choose from--though i'd go with one that involves brandy rather than vodka. i hope you all rock your friday like you mean it!

  1. In your honor I ordered a twist of the sidecar this weekend (post-blog-reading!)At this restaurant we went to in honor of A's birthday they had this variation on the menu: Sidecar topped off with champaigne and served in a flute with a sugar rim. Amazing! What would I do without these posts?! xo
