Gin­ger­bread Side­car

The Denver Post - - LIFE & CULTURE -

The Side­car: Not many peo­ple know how to make a proper side­car, so this one will re­ally get your guests break­ing out the In­sta­grams. Skrbina said de­spite de­bate over its place of ori­gin, it was cre­ated some­where in Europe around 1922, so if you hap­pen to be hav­ing a Gatsby-themed soiree or a fancy Euro­pean bash, this drink will fit in nicely. Ginger snaps and all­spice give this li­ba­tion its hol­i­day twist. In­gre­di­ents 2 ounces co­gnac 1 ounce Grand Marnier 2 sliced, fresh peeled ginger or pick­led ginger 2 strips or­ange peel dash maple syrup finely crushed ginger snaps Di­rec­tions

In a shaker, add the co­gnac, Grand Mariner, fresh ginger and a dash of maple syrup. Shake, shake, shake and strain into your glass rimmed with crushed ginger snaps and gar­nish with an or­ange peel.

The most unusual op­tion may be the Gin­ger­bread Side­car. Who makes their own side­cars, any­way?
