Cider Car

Todd Thrasher, of Restaurant Eve in Alexandria, Virginia puts a twist on some classic holiday drinks.

An old-school Sidecar is made with brandy, triple sec and lemon juice. Thrasher substitutes warm apple cider in place of lemon juice. This drink is meant to warm you up, not burn you.

Ingredients
  • Sugar
  • 1 ounce Busnel Calvados
  • 1/2 ounce Cointreau
  • Apple cider, to fill
Directions

Warm apple cider, to no hotter than 120°F. Rim a narrow glass mug with your choice of sugar. Add Calvados and Cointreau to the glass. Top off with apple cider.
