Tuesday Tipple

For a refreshing tipple let's have a Sidecar!

30ml brandy
30ml Cointreau
30 ml fresh lemon juice
ice

Pour all the ingredients into a shaker, shake, then strain into serving glass and garnish with a lemon twist. I use a martini glass for this one.
Actually, if you triple the recipe you could make a wee jug full.....

Oh and I found this clip, sorry it's one of the photo-flashing kind but I haven't heard this song for years. I used to listen to it all the time when I was a lot younger.

A Sidecar?

Where's the motorbike then?

Well, it's Wednesday. Oh heck, no it's not. It is Tuesday. Oh boy, I'm going potty here.

Start again. I've never been in a sidecar you know. Never thought about that before. I think I ought to try it one day.

Anyway, cheers Big Ears!

Wow. If that's a sidecar I'd be scared to see the motorbike!

Violet - she's Mike's sister. They do a few songs together on other albums. Not sure what she's doing now tho'. The sun is out and I'm on my last few hours at work for the year- a jug full of sidecar is just the ticket.

Owen - only if someone else is driving!

Selina - cheers, all the best to you and yours m'dear.

AWB - Have enough of the sidecar and you'll think you're already on the motorbike!

RB- cheers to you too, have a great holiday.

Steve - Indeedy, perhaps my comment to AWB refers!
