Society #2: Sidecar Soirée

Society Meeting #2
Date: Friday, April 3rd
Time: 8:00 pm
Place: Sherman Residence, Herndon
Subject: Sidecar Soirée

As the creator of Society #1's winning mojito, Michael had the honor of selecting the venue and topic of Society #2.  The gauntlet has been thrown down, it is time to get to work.  On Friday we will be celebrating the Sidecar.

The Sidecar is a classic cocktail from the time of The Great War; recipes showing up in about 1922. It's a traditional combination of Cognac, orange liqueur, and lemon juice. There are several variations including the Chelsea Sidecar, the Boston Sidecar, and the Brandy Daisy. You can see why it is so versatile, and I hope we do the original justice while adding our own special "I don't know what".

Just our luck, Jeffrey Morgenthaler just did a video tutorial for Imbibe Magazine online that features the Sidecar.  Thanks for the tips and inspiration Jeff!
