Czech Sidecar

Czech Sidecar sour cocktail with plum brandy (slivovitz), lemon juice, lime juice, simple syrup, sugar, cinnamon, and cloves

This Czech Sidecar recipe from Oregon Spirit Distillers is a wonderful sour that takes full advantage of the plummy flavors of a good slivovitz.

The sugar-spice rim isn’t just a garnish; it’s a necessary component that plays up the baked-pie flavors buried under the surface of strong plum brandy. We’ve specified a pinch each of sugar and spices because that’s what ends up on the glass, but in practice you’ll probably need more in order to be able to easily rim the glass.

Ingredients

Instructions

Begin by preparing the glass. Add the sugar and spices to flat dish and mix well. Rub a slice of lemon or lime around the outer lip of a cocktail glass, and roll in the plate of sugar and spices. Shake off any excess.

Meanwhile, shake the remaining ingredients with ice. Strain into the rimmed glass and garnish with a wedge of lemon or lime.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
