Bistro Sidecar | Cocktail Party

Bistro Sidecar

Bistro Sidecar cocktail with brandy, vanilla liqueur, hazelnut liqueur, orange juice, and lemon juice

This drink was adapted by mixologist Gaz Regan from a recipe served at Kathy Casey Food Studios in Seattle and featured in Regan’s book The Joy of Mixology.

The original recipe calls for tangerine juice, which we currently don’t list separately in the Cocktail Party app (We may change that as we test and add more recipes). We agree with Regan that the tangerine juice makes it truly special – but even with plain ol’ orange juice, this sweet, nutty, bright drink deserves a trip down your gullet.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. If you’d like, rim the glass in sugar before you strain the drink into it. Garnish with a wedge of orange or tangerine.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
