Day 214

3.5 shots out of 5

Did you know?

June 4th is National Cognac Day!

If that's not a reason to drink celebrate, I don't know what is!!

I want to start out tonight by wishing my husband a VERY VERY Happy Birthday!  

He told me what cocktail he wanted me to make on his birthday back in February when I started this blog and has been waiting patiently ever since.  

I'll admit ever since he told me his cocktail back in February........I've been scared for the day to come when I actually had to make and try it.

I gave tonight's cocktail 3.5 shots out of 5.  

I guess my fears can be laid to rest, because I actually like this cocktail!  

My oh my how my tastes have changed.  

I can see why my husband likes this cocktail.  

He enjoys a good cognac every so often and to mix a cognac into a cocktail is pure awesomeness for him.  

My husband gave me tonight's cocktail recipe and I think he got the proportions right on the head with this one.  Each of these three ingredients works very well with the other, good job husband!!

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here is the recipe for a Sidecar:

  • 1 oz Cointreau 
  • 1 1/2 cognac
  • 1/2 lemon juice

In a cocktail shaker add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake them up well and strain your cocktail into a chilled short cocktail glass.

Here's to my husband on his birthday!  May you have many many more wonderful birthday's to come!
