Tiptoe Thursday Tipple- The Cider Car
Is everyone standing on their tiptoes? Can you all see the weekend?… Yes, well it is time to celebrate then.
This weeks TTT is a West Country twist on the classic Side Car. We use 10 year aged Somerset Brandy to give the drink a real taste of the west. This drink is somehow serious and strong yet refreshing; and like all the best cocktails, a little too easy to drink!
If you’d like to make your own at home, here’s how:
37.5ml Somerset Cider Brandy
20ml Lemon Juice
17.5ml Sugar Syrup (you can make this at home, there are instructions for it here: http://cocktails.about.com/od/mixology/r/simple_syrup.htm )
Then the easy part…
Shake all the ingredients over ice and fine strain ( if you haven’t got a bar strainer you can use a tea strainer for this). We like it in a Coupe glass, but if you haven’t got one at home it looks great in a Martini glass too…
Happy Sipping on your Tiptoes!
