Torres 15 & Magdala Sidecar
Dry, and with an intense citrus flavour, the Sidecar is a cocktail classic. Perfect for pre-dinner drinks, or to kick off a night out.
A deceptively simple recipe for a cocktail that’s packed with subtle flavours – the secret lies in measuring exactly the right amount of each ingredient, and creating a perfect balance. And of course a quality brandy like Torres 15 that’s ideal for cocktail-making, combined with a good orange liqueur such as Magdala will make absolutely sure that your cocktail is perfectly balanced.
Dry, and with an intense citrus flavour, the Sidecar is a cocktail classic. Its origins date back to the beginning of the First World War, although where exactly it comes from isn’t altogether clear. Some say London, others say Paris.
Our version of the Sidecar is slightly sweeter than the original. When making it, rim half of a previously chilled glass with sugar. This way, you can decide if you prefer a sweeter or a drier taste, and choose which side of the glass to drink from accordingly. How to best enjoy this one is up to you.
It’s an elegant cocktail, perfect for pre-dinner drinks, or to kick off a night out. A cocktail to make your taste buds tingle. That’s a promise!
