Side Car Martini

It’s Friday! Woo hoo! And it is after  5 o’clock so let’s get the weekend started! I just found this recipe on the Cooking Channel site. It is courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis so you know it’ll be a good one! And it has one of my favorite liqueurs in it, Limoncello. Love it! (maybe I should marry it!) Anyway, here it is and enjoy your weekend everyone! This recipe makes 4 martinis so invite a few friends over to get the party started! Just be careful as these martinis will definitely pack quite a punch! So nosh on some snacks with them and be careful!

INGREDIENTS:

½ cup sugar

1 lime, zested

1 lime wedge

10 ounces cognac (Hennessy is recommended)

4 ounces Cointreau (or Triple Sec)

4 ounces sweet and sour mix

4 ounces Limoncello

2 ounces lime juice

ice

DIRECTIONS:

1. Chill 4 martini glasses. In a small shallow dish combine the sugar and the lime zest. Run the lime wedge around the rim of each glass. Dip in the sugar and zest mixture.

2. In a cocktail shaker mix the cognac, Cointreau, sweet and sour mix, Limoncello, and lime juice over ice. Shake to chill.

3. Pour the Side Car Martinis into the glasses and serve immediately.

French Margarita

Well we had an Italian margarita and now there is a French margarita. We tried these last weekend and they were quite tasty! Anyone who makes them please leave a comment on the blog letting me know how you liked them! And of course we were enjoying them so much I forgot to take a picture! If you want to see what it looks like go to www.food2.com/recipes/french-margarita and check it out. The picture shown is from that site.  They use raspberries and blackberries for garnish. We didn’t, because we did not have any. Guess we’ll have to make them again so I can take my own pictures this time! The ingredients call for sweet and sour mix. We used our regular margarita mix. Enjoy!
