Seems one would seal the deal on a horrible hangover with this drink!

Nice Job! I love the Sidecar, and just tried your recipe. Though I prefer mine with 1/2 ounce of lemon juice as Robert Hess suggests, instead of the 1 ounce you have indicated. One ounce is a little too tart for me and the lemon overpowers the cognac and cointreau IMHO.

I find that the Patron Citronge is a good alternative to Cointreau. It is also 80 proof and I find it to have a similar taste complexity. What’s nice is that it is at least $10 less expensive - I normally get it for $20 for a 750ml.

IMHO, it doesn’t seem like this would be sweet enough.
Jack Rose Cocktail

I prefer to use the Lairds 7 1/2 year old apple brandy, since the bottled in bond Apple Jack gives my wife and I an immediate headache after the second drink. Through trial and error we have have found the following recipe works best for us:
1 1/2 oz Lairds 7 1/2 year old apple brandy
3/4 oz simple syrup
3/4 oz lemon juice
1/4 oz real grenadine
The Jack Rose is one of our favorite drinks!

A bit awkward I’d say - sorry.

I tried this one, but It was overwhelmingly boozy for my taste. Sorry.

I must say that is an incredibly good drink. Very well balanced - absolutely synergized deliciousness.
