With our children obsessed with apple cider, we have had a lot of it in the house recently and I keep finding ways to incorporate some of the great cider we have been getting recently into our evening cocktails. Tonight I choose to go with a variation of the classic Sidecar cocktail which uses brandy as its base spirit. Brandy and apples is a classic pairing, so i decided to run with it and modify the classic Sidecar with a bit of fresh cider. The addition of the apple cider gave a nice crisp tang to the sweetness of the brandy and Cointreau. I topped it off with a garnish of a brandied cherry that gave just a hint of spice.
