Spiced Orange Gin Sidecar

This is our take on a classic and uses our VIE Spiced Blood Orange Gin to great effect.

The history of the Sidecar cocktail is thought to date back to the 1920s, making it as glamorous as it is delicious.
The proportions used in this cocktail vary from recipe to recipe but it’s an easy cocktail to adapt to your taste. Traditionally it has a slightly sour taste and is often served in a glass with a sugared rim but you can add a hint of sugar syrup as an alternative sweetener. Have fun mixing and experimenting and take a trip back to the roaring 20s with this twist on a jazz age classic.
