Feeling a bit libidinous this weekend? Perhaps a “Between the Sheets” is in order. Said to be originated in Paris during the 1930s, this popular drink is a variation of the Sidecar. Here are the ingredients:
One ounce Brandy
One ounce Lemon juice
One ounce Triple Sec
One ounce Light Rum
Combine brandy, light rum, triple sec, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker. Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.
If you’d like a fruitier alternative, you can substitute peach schnapps for the brandy.
