Tiptoe Thursday Tipple- The Cider Car

Cider Car for post

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:

Ingredients:

37.5ml Somerset Cider Brandy

17.5ml Cointreau

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!
