In our Q&A with political commentator Rachel Maddow (who also happens to be a serious cocktail enthusiast), Maddow told us that one of her favorite cocktails is the Tantris Sidecar from New York City’s Pegu Club. Here’s the recipe.
1 1⁄4 oz. Cognac
1⁄2 oz. calvados
1⁄2 oz. Cointreau
1⁄2 oz. fresh lemon juice
1⁄2 oz. simple syrup (1:1)
1⁄4 oz. pineapple juice
1⁄4 oz. green Chartreuse
Tools: shaker, strainer
Garnish: glass is 1⁄2-rimmed with sugar & lemon twist sprayed on top
Combine all ingredients in shaker with ice. Shake to chill, strain into a chilled glass and garnish.
